When is the last time you've thought about packaging and how you package yourself? Not only your look, but how you message things?…
So you are probably wondering what is this guy on about?. A promiscuous digit and recruitment, well let me explain.

When beginning my career, after starting to work in the r eal world (per say) - I would spend my time on ironing boards.
I would neatly press all my shirts and slacks, usually on the weekends. I would hear from people about how they took everything to the cleaners. Had everything pressed, starched and dry cleaned. I was never the one to do such a thing. I had the time so I did it myself. On Sundays, I would get everything ready for the week. Maybe have a…Continue

Why would anyone call a recruiter when they are so totally frustrated that they can't speak normally? I told…Continue

Companies now, more than ever, are shifting to a paperless work environment. As I look at my own desk, bulging with piles of paper, it’s not hard to justify the ROI on making such a move. I must admit, I am a little “old school” about holding on to my files and printing copies of everything that I also file electronically. But I’m finally at the breaking point as my workspace becomes smaller and smaller and my piles become higher and higher. I’m ready to embrace an e-friendly paperless…Continue
