Keeping Answer Guy Central running can be a complicated thing. The job of making business change by putting the right people in the right places to handle our clients’ needs isn’t always easy, and I’m constantly on the lookout for new talent.

“Job descriptions are of a person who doesn’t exist, and the applicant’s task is to pretend to be that person”.
While there’s always been some truth to that—employers put out a wish list and potential employees do their best to look as though they fit—the Internet has made the problem much worse.
