Hanukkah!

Submitted by: Abby Bruno, Recruiting Manager “Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of clay. And when you’re dry and ready, oh dreidel I shall play!” For my family, the end of the year is synonymous with this jingle on repeat.

Submitted by: Kaitlyn McCormack, Senior Recruiting Manager I have a confession. When I was asked to facilitate a training on “Creating a Culture of Service”, I was a little apprehensive.

Keys to a Successful Video Interview

Submitted by: Heather Sueirro, Recruiting Manager Advances in technology have made it easier for you to find and apply for your dream job, but fitting an interview into your already busy schedule can be difficult.

Because most potential employees complete video interviews outside of normal business hours, the convenience of interviewing virtually is unmatched and a time saver …
