I have read numerous discussions over the past year in HR magazines and on Linkedin discussing the importance of hiring employees that match your company’s culture.

If you are interviewing with a company, think of yourself as a restaurant worker after you use the bathroom. Simply put: Wash your hands. Your mother told you this every day growing up so that when you got into public, it would be a natural habit. Good habits pay big rewards.
Picture this: I go to use our restrooms and run into someone I don’t know coming out of the stall where “Number 2” business was just taken care of. I say “hello”, he says “hello”. It’s just a cordial…Continue
Recently I came across a series of postings form a staffing professional, about how to determine the honesty and integrity of candidate.
