Look beyond the resume for the best hire

Great article Glen, illustrating how it comes down to "can they do the work that needs to be done"? Nick at asktheheadhunter.com has been preaching this approach for many years to try to help both those doing the interviewing and those being interviewed. You should share your example with him and his readers as it hits home on how your approach worked best for everyone. Thanks again for sharing this! John By John Mauro on 2014 08 12

I was on my way to a meeting this week and realized I was running late, because I was trying to get there on time, not early - which would not allow me to get my computer up and running and to have my notes ready. I was all sorts of annoyed with myself. Then I read this article (a few days after it came out), I think the universe is telling me something By Interesting on 2014 08 09

Chef Laura: Punctuality through pastries

i used to treat my staff to bagels on saturday mornings and doughnuts on sunday mornings... back in the good old days. i'm glad i can just be a punctual worker bee now. drives me crazy to think you have to "bribe" people to do their jobs. after all - isn't that what your pay is?

More on the laws of exponential capabilities

Linear thoughts on longevity & healthcare combined with government's crony business & institutional relationships are currently sabotaging progress in personalized medicine.
