Where has the money gone and what will you get in return?

Yahoo! TechTicker is wondering where the bailout money is going and what taxpayers are getting in return: Bail-Outrage: Misuse of Funds, Lack of Transparency a National Disgrace

After all, if you don't know what you traded the cash for, how can you reclaim the value, when, as people are arguing, the markets "surge" and repay the taxpayers?

As librarians, who should rightly be concerned with freedom of information, Bloomberg has filed a federal lawsuit to find out who got what and what for.

Finding a master resume writer

A friend of mine passed this article along, Finding a Master Resume Writer, and since I had linked to Jobacle's quest to test resume writers, I thought I would also post this item.

I don't think that anyone really needs to hire someone to write their resume, but if you are pressed for time, and convinced that you really can't explain your career on paper (and not many people can) you may consider hiring a professional resume writer.
