  • Liar Liar ….pants on fire ?
    Honesty pays. Don’t lie. Be Trustworthy. I remember there was a time values such as above were taken as a given. And a deviation was punished. Strictly and swiftly. Many of “my” generation would recall ( I surely do….:-)  ) the times we stood on our school benches – or were given a good slap – to atone one of corresponding sins. Which is why perhaps, even now most of us would try not to deviate. What now ? Just focusing on the Job / Recruitment Industry, here is some interesting data for you ! Check out  which says […]More

  • Confidentiality – the Recruiter’s View
    Sealed Lips Sink No Ships ! Confidentiality – The Recruiter’s View Do these Scenarios sound familiar ? A)  You call up a Recruiter for  position advertised.
