Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? Silence is an answer too. What do you like to do in your free time? I coach a high school dance team, and am renovating my 1920's home. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? The culture; it is seen/felt from the minute you walk in the door. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? There are a lot of ways we cut loose around here- we consistently have contests, group outings, do charitable work together. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Work hard, play hard, and enjoy who you do it with. (That's our motto!)

This week, I did something that truly scared me. I sent an email to over 120,000 Work It Daily newsletter subscribers and asked them to answer the question, "What do we do?"
