No question about it, interviewing and hiring somebody is a pretty big deal. If you're a manager tasked with bringing a new employee on board, not only is the candidate you choose going to influence your own career success to a large degree, but you're also going to be spending a huge chunk of your waking life with the individual in question.
One recent study from HP Workplace, in fact, suggests that 56% of professionals spend more time with their “work family” than they do with their real family!
We are pleased to announce Puget Soundkeeper Alliance's new executive director, Sean Dixon. Sean is a former Senior Attorney at Hudson Riverkeeper and most recently worked as Chief of Staff for the Region 1 (New England) office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
