I just friggin' love CATS. Asim, Andrew and Sae do a kickass job with their product.
Not to mention they're all smart enough to know that just cause they're brilliant, it doesn't mean they have every idea. CATS set up BusyRecruiter.com as a means of opening up the flow of ideas. As a result I have had literally the best experience with this company, from their… Continue

That said, I have this week so far self censored out 2 blog posts, 5 forum responses and 9 emails. By… Continue
The global economy has gotten so bad that Japan and some countries in Europe have tried to save jobs by implementing "work-sharing" programs. Here in the U.S., employers are equally concerned with keeping employees on staff, while still cutting costs. Their response is to implement furloughs.
