Recruitment’s Unsettling Truth

Happy New Year readers. Although some would argue I’m 3 months late, if you’re anything like me, there’s only one “new year” which I celebrate and/or commiserate. Last Thursday, we marked the end of the financial year with the first Rice PowWow in what seems like an eternity. 80+ semi-pissed…
