Scared Straight – OFCCP Style!

Being a parent of three boys I’ve always been a fan of the theory behind “Scared Straight”! Your kids don’t listen to you, they’re getting in trouble, just send them down to the local prison and have them meet with some inmates! I mean what could go wrong? In adult life, we don’t have many […]

Why Am I Being Ghosted After I Interviewed?

Dear Timmy, I recently applied for a position that I’m perfect for! A recruiter from the company contacted me and scheduled me for an interview with the manager.
