I don't think that is true. I really, really don't think that is true.

I got into recruiting by accident, replying to a job posting for a talent scout while looking for a steadier job than my part time gig working the talent desk at Comedy Central, which entailed mostly phones and photocopies.
I sometimes got to go get Starbucks for the Reno 911! producers or find a sassy black supporting type for a two liner out of a room full of…Continue

Washington, DC - Do you think the job search is broken? If so, you’re not alone. According to a recent survey by the National Institute of Subjective Statistics, 79% of job seekers…Continue
When thinking about the digital engagement of active social media users, rookies generally alternate between wondering (often enviously or wistfully) “How do they find the time?” and scoffing (often dismissively and disdainfully) “How do they have so much ‘free’ time?” In our overcommitted, busy lives, lack of time is a common lament. Many people are so…Continue
