She just waved her hand at me … >>Continue reading Organization is For the Lazy

Think that’s funny? Don’t! For every job listing that offers telecommuting as an option for the employee, the potential employer gets hundreds of cover letters like it. >>Continue reading Don't Be a Telecommuting Whore
