Alvin Toffler once said:“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
The majority of today's adults failed to understand the aforementioned Toffler's quote about the ability to “unlearn, and relearn.” In fact, today's competition… Continue

It has certainly been one of "Those" years. One can't help but imagine where the time has inevitably gone. Rounding out the year, there were moments where change was in full throttle with moments that created within it as a trajectory those little pressure cooked moments where you had to "buckle up, hold on tight, and go through several rounds of ups and downs, twists and turns and a roller coaster going about the speed of light."

Job boards proclaim the promise of making it easy for both employers and employees to find each other.
When built correctly and maintained, job board websites hold true to that pledge. However, not all job boards are worthwhile the time and effort it takes to post or apply for, a job.

Our industry is one that is dominated by small recruitment agencies. Yet, I would imagine that most of the owners of these small agencies would like to grow if they could grow profitably. Unfortunately much of the growth, if it does occur is not profitable growth.
