I’m not sure of the actual number of times, but in the recent past (6 months or so) it seems that this (“I made them laugh”) is a typical response from my candidates when I ask them how they think they did on the interview.

Here’s a quick tip for Recruiters.
If your search for top talent includes any of the many Job Boards there’s an easy way you can find some excellent candidates.
Before you focus your attention on those candidates who recently created their account and added their Profile/Resume (or those who recently edited it) you might want to first check out all the qualified candidates from 1,2,3 and maybe even 4 years ago if the Job Board you’re using gives you that option.

There are few decisions more critical for a company than the hiring of the leadership of their sales organization. Yet, few know how to do it well. Many err and "promote" their best seller to a sales management position. Why this is called a promotion is beyond me. The job of the sales manager is vastly different than that of a sales person, so why is this considered employment elevation? Often times, sales managers earn less than the top sales people. Promotion?
Some sales people…Continue
Here’s an interesting bit of information from this past weekend.
