Considering "Job Clubs" ...

We’ve got another entry from “co-Job Stalker” Gordon Dymowski today.  Interestingly, he’s taking up the subject of “job clubs”, a concept that I’d just encountered in reading the Mark Bolles book that I covered last week.  Needless to say, I found this of interest, and I hope you will too! — One of my greatest...

Towards brave new worlds ...
