George Blomgren is sharing the inside scoop on his blog For Job Seekers. George is a gatekeeper.
What I love about George’s Insider’s Scoop article is that he shares some of the top reasons why a person is not chosen for the job. This info is important to know – and review – when you’re in the market for a new gig.

When working with a labor relations director during a major outplacement program I ran, she told me, “I look for attitude. Attitude is everything. You can always teach a skill.
