More Job Seekers Behaving Badly
Awhile ago, I had posted an entry about two job seekers who tended to….well, behave in a very counterproductive manner, to put it gently.

Time: That Most Precious Commodity
It’s hard to believe that it’s not even been quite a year since I wrote about time management….and ironically, my schedule has exploded.
