Count Eroffer

A demonic figure that makes Bram Stoker’s Dracula seem more at place with his numerical namesake on Sesame Street. Much like the folklore perpetuated in Lost Boys this evil presence can only harm you if you invite it in your home. For those who are in the dark let me…

Thank God for Clichés

Blogging after a Rice PowWow is always a challenge. I'm always torn between hoping that New Zealand's premier recruitment networking event will throw up an interesting topic, and the reality of having to write five hundred words with a stinking hangover.

How to Handle Resigning

May The Silly Season Commence

Good morning recruiters, a quick one from me today as I have things to do and people to see around the glittering environs of Auckland's North Shore (much to Sean's dismay, he seems to think he needs a passport to cross the bridge...) A couple of people dug out a…
