I was in IT for several years before being laid off a few years ago. I was laid off right before September 11, 2001 and was working on my MBA in eCommerce at the time. I found myself in a very difficult situation as many other people did during that time. Because I was working on my MBA and was almost finished, companies I interviewed with considered me 'over-qualified' for most positions I applied and interviewed for.
I stumbled into IT… Continue

When born with superpowers and upon the day of realization – the first step in the life of a Super Hero or potential Villain is the careful choosing of the name – or at least, that’s how it happens in the movies. As a Head Huntress, my first obvious choice would be The Head Huntress of the World
or The Princess of Placement
; however, in reality based upon an average day, my name should truly be something like The HR Defeater
or perhaps Requirement Rambo… Continue
