    When I was around 13 years old, I was doing so poorly in school that I was told I could not return the next year to the private high school I was attending. To add insult to injury, the school told me I would be lucky to finish high school at a public high school and should consider going to a special needs school.

Choosing an exceptional recruiter is even more important in a bad market because the methods he or she uses determines if a candidate will find employment.

    You Career and Life Is About Getting “Let In”

    By Apr 12,2014

    One Saturday night when I was around 14, one of my neighbors,  a 16-year-old boy who was a well-liked athlete at the local high school, went out with friends to a local party, got very drunk, and had someone give him a ride home.  How drunk was he?
