Create a good first impression over the phone
Rule no. 1: Find a quiet place to talk to recruiter, fully charge your mobile before the interview, and turn call waiting off. The person on the other line will be able to hear you clearly, and you will be able to hear them. It sounds simple, but wind can be a factor if you take the call outside!

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. Our sweet guy, Hurley, immediately became a part of our family and dramatically influenced our official new lifestyle as doggie people.
As his one year adoption anniversary approached, I wanted to come up with a way to celebrate how much love and enjoyment he has brought our…Continue

Companies with a diverse workforce perform better.
