Human resources: an exec’s worst enemy

As a 23 year old mastermind intellectual, I find it depressing that corporations - with their internationally acclaimed precedence - hire fools and clowns such as HR It is as safe to say that 2/3 of the HR people are entirely blind to, "personal" perspectives. And as a result always wish to find a square peg for the square hole, and not a round peg for a square hole to actually innovate. Whatever "perfect" you want - there cannot be a perfect candidate. So you must train them. That's another thing! 2/3rd of the HR populous are lazy ass's who don't train their professionals upon hiring. That says something. If you're stupid enough to "Look for the perfect candidate" and at the same time not train a POTENTIAL perfect candidate. you are wasting as much as time for the company for "Human RESOURCES" as you are claiming would-be perfect candidates as inferior.

What do Dominos and an appraiser have in common?

Good article, but I would disagree on values with appraisers coming in inflated at 20%. I think most real estate brokers with highly disagree with this statement. The mess created by the supposed "appraisal pool" and how they now do things is totally bazaar! Most people know appraisals are only done, for the most part, for lenders- so beware and be prepared as the article suggests. By Fred R Schneider on 2014 12 19

The gift of great hires

Employers who make unreasonable demands from potential employees prior to employment deserve no loyalty or performance after employment. Background checks, credit checks, certifications, drug tests and citizenship verification for a 'job' are intrusive and rude and it is time American workers draw the line on this vulgar HR practice.
