Best Recruiters

There are great recruiters around the globe that are unrecognized both in industry and business.  Their names you may have never heard, their titles differ, and their salary is not a measure of their success.  Great recruiters are employed, unemployed, and underemployed.  They are in development, yet to develop and developing others.  However, they all have some greatness in them.  Some have learned their craft through due diligence, others try a haphazard approach, and still others forge…

Recruiter Giving Blog Credit

I am not consistent in my blogs because my interest are as varied and conceptual as my time to write. I don't pretend to have…

Dear Global Warming

My sister recently wrote a letter to Global Warning, which although funny in addressing Global Warning as a being, is not so funny a topic. An environmental world organization responded with a hysterical response. Visit the Blog on blogger DearGlobalWarming.
