A Tattered Career

By |April 20th, 2019

Recently, while I was caught up in a web of curiosity – leaping from site to site – clicking on links and images that garnered interest, I came across a sleek, well designed website – www.unclaimedbaggage.com. I was fascinated by this one-of-a-kind store.

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 […]

There Are No Rules For The Career-Minded

By |June 11th, 2018

Years ago, people wanted to stay with one company for their entire careers. It was a badge of honor. Working for one company meant you could adapt and overcome. You could learn and grow. It signified loyalty which was rewarded by advancement and greater compensation. Follow the rules. Bury your head. Do what you’re […]

Sometimes, You Must Switch It Up

By |June 29th, 2015

When you’re a candidate for a new job – by choice or unforeseen circumstance – it’s easy to get lost amidst the competition. And, as if the competition wasn’t enough, candidates have been known to disappear in the vast depths of database systems too.

You’ve been there. You’re willing to do whatever it takes to […]

Get Your Just Deserts

By |June 2nd, 2015

When the job market is active, it’s just as important to validate as is it to make a change. The grass may not be greener, but, finding out what weed killer a company is using can be valuable too.
