I recently finished listening to Susan Cain’s book - Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.

I see a lot of resumes in my position and one recently brought back memories of when I needed to update my own a few years ago. Back then, one of my challenges was how to keep resume concise and interesting without marginalizing my journey or what I had to offer my next employer.

Knowledge is Key: Why I Love Working at NewsGator

Different types of people value different factors in their work environment. I have heard corporate recruiters sing the praises of various aspects of their corporate environment, including when there wasn’t anything terribly praiseworthy.
