Hmmm. A better way to title this would be why I hate recruiting. Yes, I said hate recruiting. I have never been fond of something that has its ups and downs so drastically it makes me want either…Continue

How I look when entering some networking events...minus the car seat and hair.

Bigger base salary, increase in responsibility, better commission plan, better management, older…Continue
