When even “starter jobs” require some degree of experience, the question often arises: Just where do you get it? Well, what if more companies focused on the benefits of hiring new grads, rather than demanding the prerequisite of hard-to-find experience? Lower salary costs are hardly the only upside for...

Technology Is Killing The Art Of Communication In The Workplace
No longer do you need to talk to a person to make plans—you send a text. You don’t have to call to make a reservation—you click a button. And you don’t have to even call to order a pizza anymore—you send a pizza emoji. Communicating is completely different now, thanks to technology, and while so many things are better because of it, the art of communication is dying—especially when it comes to the world of work.

Building an Extraordinary Team: Four Essential Lessons From a Global Recruiter
One of the many joys of leadership is the opportunity it presents to build a team. So far in my career I’ve done this twice.
