The power of blogs

Great week on “the job hunt”

Well my first full week of job hunting is coming to a close, and I must say that so far I am very pleased. In the past week I have been to a few interviews, found some interesting positions, met many great people, attended networking and career development sessions, and even given a speech. It […]
