The Real Life That Technology Won’t Show You

By |May 6th, 2019

Forget Your Competition

By |November 8th, 2018

By David Rose
I spoke with a candidate the other day. He was worked up – agitated and frustrated like a caffeine addict weaning off the java. He sent his mediocre resume with an unimpressive work history, and without any frame of reference, he felt he was the best candidate for a job he knew nothing […]

Loathing, Loving, or Just Plain Lazy

By |September 18th, 2018

By David Rose
Loathing and loving a job is common. The back and forth; the flow of day to day business affects how you feel. If there are more good days through the course of the month than bad days, you’re in a good place. If, however, motivating yourself to take on the day seems […]
