Unthankful Employee Syndrome

If such a list existed would left-leaning folks cry foul claiming it was employment discrimination? I bet they might try to prove that in a court of law to get some case law onto the books for future lawsuits, but ask yourself this; isn’t it fair that employee hires tell an employer that even if them, they might walk off the job in a huff for virtually any reason sometime in the future leaving customers high and dry and threatening the company’s brand name? Let’s talk shall we?

You see, there was a troubling article on MSNBC Money online news recently titled; “Mass resignation at Journeys reflects mall troubles – Employees at a store in New York quit at the same time and call out their manager online. That’s a particularly tough loss when malls are dying and employing fewer young workers than ever,” by Jason Notte which was published … Read the rest

Medical Assistant Certification

Keeping Cool During an Interview

Technology Staffing Solutions

Streamline the Process

An information technology staffing company should use information technology to streamline their internal processes. For example, instead of using spreadsheets and handwritten notes to manage processes like prospecting, matching skills of applicants to requests and recruiting, staffing firms should use a proper solution. Such a solution will help to streamline the recruiting process, increase its efficiency and will also help an IT staffing company to stay ahead of its competitors.


Manual processes are time consuming and are also prone to errors. The chance of errors only increases if the company is spread across multiple locations. This not only inhibits the ability of recruiters to fill the job orders but also hampers the growth of a company. Hence a staffing company should automate some of its processes to increase the ability of its recruiters and help the business grow.


Experts believe that integrating different processes helps
