  1. Thanks Todd
    We have hit 30+ days…now we are trying to set the record for the most days over 105+….
    I am looking forward to others comments, best practices, what-not-to-dos, etc.

  2. Hmmm. Paying $100/name & verified contact info with a 25% hire-conversion rate, and $2,000-$4,000/much-in-demand hires in a mid-priced market. Sounds GREAT.


  3. Hi, Cathy – Good to see you again (don’t know if you remember me, I’m here in the heat of Dallas, and met you awhile back at a networking event.) I would appreciate assisting with some of your more urgent, hard-to-fill reqs – hope we can connect soon. Interesting views/”food for thought;” thank you too, Ralph!
