A coworker of mine absolutely detests the phrase, "Recruiting is a lot like dating." She says it's cliche and trite; and she is right. The problem, though, with cliches and all things trite, is that they are true.

Yes, there are some bad apples; some…Continue
Like most sequels, this is not as good as the original, but I hope this is a better sequel than Revenge of the Nerds II. Please read #4 first if you are pressed for time.
1. Cold Calls on Voicemail. Keep the pitch short. Find out the delete # in my system and say "Don't hit the 9 key! My friend Julie is a top notch SharePoint developer and asked me contact you about yesterday's posting. I'm Julie Carr with Blobert Blaf Blechnology (or any company that just…Continue
