Today is another addition to those “literary posts” that I have already shared with you. This day is a day we take some additional advice from the greatest playwright of our time and apply it to the business world and your recruiting department, because what Shakespeare taught us about love and war, he can also teach us about business.

In its March 2011 issue, Fortune magazine released its annual list of the World’s Most Admired Companies. These are the companies that have the best reputations among business people.

I have twice used my discussions with my daughter to inspire blogs. Her and I frequently discuss the ways in which the worlds of business and the world of art and literature coincide. Not too long ago, we related this back to Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and then Romeo and Juliet, and how lessons learned from that could apply in both words.

Staffing Software is great, but it can’t tell you where to look for candidates in the never-ending (but always exciting) world of global staffing.

Recently I reminded you that have a daughter who studies philosophy and literature in college.
