Never Work for Free
ORIGINAL AIR DATE - May 7, 2009 - In episode #125, Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen debate the shady (?) practice of companies who solicit free consultation from jobseekers too eager to please.

(If you think it only happens during a recession, think again.)

Should Executive Pay Be Regulated?

Eventually, the conversation focuses on how Lance was able to get a new job in HR without a resume. How? Apparently, all he needed was his blog. Plus, the announcement of a very popular blog being auctioned on eBay. Can you guess which one?

Workplace Violence and Misclassification (Double ouch!)
Original air date: July 23, 2008 - Jim starts off with shocking news about workplace violence, but is more shocked that its not uncommon. Karen rants about how easy it is to get a gun and bring it to the workplace. Did you know that sooo many companies misclassify Recruiters?

Recruiting the sexes, spamming the EEOC and job-stealing immigrants
Original air date: November 16, 2007 - In this episode, Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen discuss bringing your spouse to your interview. Karen thought is was a good idea but Jim, not so much. Did you know someone was spamming the EEOC for fun and profit? Did immigrants steal all the jobs, or did we just give them away? And in the category of “beating a dead horse,” Jim and Karen harp (again) on age discrimination.
