@All: I am looking forward to this presentation.  I hope to start a
conversation about these topics.
- What do you want to know?
- What aggravates you about job-searching and/or recruiters in general?
- What are your thoughts/concerns in this market/economy
- What do you wish hiring managers and recruiters would "get" that
they just don't get.
- How do YOU like to be approached about job opportunities?
- etc?
