I recently listened to Destiny’s Child’s first record “No, No, No.” I remember thinking how good the original four member group sounded together. Like most people I had almost forgotten Destiny’s Child’s first record was a ballad. The song’s vocal arrangements were flattering and the music was nice. Those factors considered, the tune received minimal airplay. The audience Destiny’s Child attempted to reach wanted to dance, and...

by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2013
Whether you’re an executive looking for his/her next senior position or a career newbie, job search is hard work. The specifics will undoubtedly differ in various respects, but the underlying theme is the same. You can’t get there from here without serious effort.

by Mary Sherwood Sevinsky - Aug, 2013
Hello? Is it me you are looking for? Looking for work when you don’t have a job can be incredibly lonely and unrewarding. So, how can you get hired?
