To See or Not To See? Photo-Inclusive Resumes Are the Question

This woman’s eyes were so scary, they made me shudder.

Catching the RSS Wave

When online news articles and technology bloggers began proclaiming sometime in 2008 that Twitter would become the AP newswire of the future, I literally laughed out loud.

Economic Downturn, Staffing Upturn

We started our staffing company almost a decade ago.  The Y2K and Internet bubble had already burst.  We were trying to ride the magic carpet of technical staffing that had since disappeared.  As a result, it became a trend for companies to invest in their people again.  They were more interested in full time employees […]
