Here’s a true story that took place last week.

We were not expecting a shipment of any kind from Canada so before I even considered giving…Continue

There is only one television event each year that can hold people’s attention through commercials. In other words, there will be no use of the DVR and you won’t hear anywhere yell for you to “fast-forward” past the paid ads.
Of course, I’m referring to the Super Bowl and I’m sure this is all true simply because the ads can sometimes be more entertaining than the game itself.
The NFL’s title game is famous for being the most watched TV event of the year. With 80-90 million…Continue

Here’s a quick tip for Recruiters.
If your search for top talent includes any of the many Job Boards there’s an easy way you can find some excellent candidates.
Before you focus your attention on those candidates who recently created their account and added their Profile/Resume (or those who recently edited it) you might want to first check out all the qualified candidates from 1,2,3 and maybe even 4 years ago if the Job Board you’re using gives you that option.
