If you want to fill a job, hire someone with the skills to do it. If you want a companion, go to eHarmony – in your own time!
I had a friend who was rejected for a job that seemed perfect. She was told that they selected someone who was a better fit. There was no explanation. What does it mean – this fabled “fit”? One thing is for sure, it is an often mystical final step in the recruiting process that can turn superb qualifications and references into a pile of nothing!
Recruiting can be difficult, thus finding a softer easier way, allowing us to make less calls but still obtain better targeted candidates is often crucial for many of us freeing up more time to be more constructive with management of our daily tasks, or maybe even to spend with family. ** (see give away below)

Even after I turned my career around, I didn’t like sharing my job burnout history.
