Connie's Inspiring quote today is by ~ Chris Grosser
"Opportunities don't happen, you create them."
Are you finding it difficult to hire quality people to join your organization? Or are the folks sending in their resumes not the right fit for the job’s posted? Why? And how can you get the right people to interview, accept the position and stick around for the long haul?
