Almost everyone was told growing up that we can be anything we want to be if we just try hard enough. Unfortunately, this is not true.

n Selected as one of the “50 Greatest Players in NBA History”
n Member of 6 NBA Championship teams
n 6 time NBA Finals MVP

So I am updated to Firefox 3.0 and with the exception of signature all of my favorite add-ons have been updated. It is these add-ons that make my life as a sourcer much easier. So below I have listed the addons I use and what they do for me.
Google Toolbar - Besides the search and the Google dog food here are what I believe to be the best reasons to use it. The site search button - you find a site that you want to explore. Instead of typing out site:webaddress.com you just press the… Continue

Sure, some say he was nice on me, even though I was SURE he was lurking... just waiting to HAMMER me.
Some say he should have investigated my threat against Shannon Underhill* more deeply.
But everyone agrees it sounded fun.
Either way, here is a nice link to check it out on your own:

I am a corporate recruiter who manages an average of 30 technical positions at any given time for my company. On a good day, let’s just say I barely have time to go to the bathroom. I followed up on a great resume this week that came in response to a posted position, and discovered to my amazement that the phone number was directed not to a candidate, but to an agency recruiter.
