As I have told my stunned teenage children, we only had four television channels when I was a kid. Back in the day (and by this I mean before anyone ...
Over the next 18 months, proposed and pending mergers and acquisitions are going to completely change the media landscape. Even if only a few of them ...
Do you think you knew all the basic human resources questions hiring companies like to ask? What are your strengths? Weaknesses? HR 101, I call them. Familiar?
My kids' current favorite show is Shark Tank, where budding entrepreneurs pitch ideas to a team of corporate tycoons who double as potential investors.
