PODCAST – Never Work for Free

ORIGINAL AIR DATE – May 7, 2009 – In episode #125, Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen debate the shady (?) practice of companies who solicit free consultation from jobseekers too eager to please. How far should a jobseeker go to please a potential employer before saying “enough is enough?” How much longer will companies ask interviewees for solutions to present-day issues, not hire that applicant, but still use their intellectual property to their benefit? (If you think it only happens during a recession, think again.)
