Going out with a BANG!

We all have our bad days. Whether it is having to deal with that annoying co-worker who keeps stealing your pens or an overly aggressive customer who is disappointed with the product or service you have provided.

Listening to Ali Velshi speak at the 2010 HRPA Conference was quite interesting to say the least.

Sure it gets frustrating when an associate calls in sick 5 minutes after their shift began or after days of negotiating back and forth you finally convince your client that your candidate is worth an extra $5K, only to have your candidate accept a… Continue
