Nobody Wants Those Crummy Trump Jobs

I’m unabashedly libertarian in my politics. I don’t think government can solve anything that you can’t fix yourself. There are exceptions, of course.

HR, The DNC is showing you how not to communicate!

We love to cover our ass in HR. It’s actually in The HR Rule Book, page 1, first paragraph: “Like our brothers and sisters in the Real Estate game, we all have really only one rule to live by. They live by, “Location, location, location”. In HR we live by, “Document, document, document”.  Documentation is great until it’s not! The Washington Post reported this week…
