by Harry Urschel - Jan, 2011
Over the course of 25 years as a recruiter I've interviewed thousands of people. Beyond that, I debrief with my clients after they interview candidates and get their feedback and impressions as well.

How Long Do Your College Honors Matter?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2011
Entry-level professionals often have a hard time trying to determine which information to include on their resumes. While you obviously want to include any education or degrees, the other stuff from college gets a little trickier. Do employers want to know you were in the photography club?
