Original air date: July 23, 2008 – Jim starts off with shocking news about workplace violence, but is more shocked that its not uncommon. Karen rants about how easy it is to get a gun and bring it to the workplace. Did you know that sooo many companies misclassify Recruiters? And if you signed a contract that said you could not work in your field for a period of time, would that be a legally binding document? Umm… not so much. Tune in to another exciting episode of The Recruiters Lounge podcast.
Original air date: November 16, 2007 – In this episode, Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen discuss bringing your spouse to your interview. Karen thought is was a good idea but Jim, not so much. Did you know someone was spamming the EEOC for fun and profit? Did immigrants steal all the jobs, or did we just give them away? And in the category of “beating a dead horse,” Jim and Karen harp (again) on age discrimination. | Special thanks to our sponsor – Proactive Talent.
