One day your Boss strolls into your cube and says, “we (meaning you) need to hire 10 Java Developers in a month.” Suddenly you panic, hyperventilate, grow dizzy, faint, then wake up and shout in a Scottish-like Scotty Star Trek sort of way…”I can’t do it! We need more Recruiting Power!” Then you're getting a very brief job description that mentions candidates will need to work weekends, do TPS reports, and bug… Continue

By now, I’m sure most baseball fans have seen the movie Moneyball, which is a sports drama based on the Oakland Athletics’ 2002 season and their general manager Billy Beane, played by Brad Pitt.
