A blog about my dog (...and recruiting)

Almost exactly one year ago, my husband and I adopted our little fur baby from the local animal shelter. We both grew up with pets, but this was our first (and only child) together as a couple.

Diversity fail: Why you should never trust CVs and Job Interviews
