Receiving a resource request from a client is the culmination of many hours of hard work!

I’ve seen this movie over and over. Candidates have their first interview with a client and like a first date, they fall madly in love. A perfect match!

I have always been a sports fan. I played various organized sports since I was 6 years old all the way through college, where I played baseball. In my opinion, so much of what happens in the sports world translates to everyday life. I also believe there are many lessons that can be learned and […]

In my last post I talked about the concept of a candidate being “deliverable.” From the perspective of a hiring manger, a candidate being deliverable translates into the likelihood of each prospective candidate accepting the offer you extend.
