Words With Friends (Candidates)

Please Think Before You Speak

Why don’t people think before they speak?  I mean really think about what they are saying and the meaning behind their words.

Why You Should (Almost) Never Accept a Counter Offer

Counter Offer vs. New Job?

I don’t believe in absolutes and never is a very strong word.  There are certainly some instances when accepting a counter offer is mutually beneficial to an employee and employer but more often than not a counter offer is the beginning of the end.
