I know I always say this, so apologies for my redundancy, readers, but after recruiting for years I always think I’ve seen it all. And then, WAMMO, another something crazy happens.

In past posts, I have discussed the difference between firms that hire consultants and those that place consultants on a contract basis. There are firms that hire consultants as a salaried employee and pay them whether they are working or not (bench time), and firms that bring on a consultant and pay them hourly for […]

In 2007, Marilee Jones, called the “most celebrated Admissions Dean in America” resigned from MIT — the reason? A lie on her 1979 job application, fabricating several degrees. In 2006, David Edmondson stepped down as Radio Shack’s CEO, after he was caught lying about his academic record —again, claiming degrees that he didn’t earn. Lying […]

One of the best parts of being a recruiter or a resource manager at a consulting firm is extending job or contract offers. Think about the last time you received that call; it was so exciting! We want you to work for us and we’re going to pay you to do it – hooray! I […]
