    Finally…someone gets it right. You guys understand the mind set of recruiters and sourcers. Typically, I’m guessing, I found you while “sourcing” on the Internet. Like writers, our minds wander and we drift about online and only occasionally does that wasted time pay off; I have subscribed to The Recruiter’s Lounge.
