Interview with Jeff: Daisy Wright’s Show ~ Discussing Working with Recruiters

I had a great opportunity to be on Daisy Wright‘s BlogTalkRadio Career Tips2Go Show this week along with Sarah Welstead (both in Canada!).  Sarah and I answered questions from callers that covered a lot of ground in the job search.
