Summer is here and its arrival is signified by the first week of July being one of shortest work weeks of the year.  This is the week when the recruitment industry likes to put their rumor mill in high gear and starts spreading the myth “no one hires in the summer.”    This gives average performing Recruitment Professionals the opportunity to go on an extended guilt free vacation.  The Recruitment Professional still working back in the office is just like the good Farmer.  They understand…
