We live in tough economic times. The unemployment rate (as of July 31, 2010) stands at 9.5%. We all know people who have been affected by the contraction of the economy. You can’t escape the story, it’s all around us.
For this week conversation, we wanted to talk with an expert recruiter – someone who’s entire reason for being is helping organizations find the right people to join their team.
Enter David James.
David and I connected on the professional networking site LinkedIn. Our conversation, both on and offline, explored several topics. At every turn, David was very generous with in insights and shared some things we should all keep in mind whether we are in a job now or looking for one.
