    I know many of "CFers" in the past have been asking about employment and local jobs as we head into the Summer. Well, if you're for work, Thursday you can meet face to face with dozens of area business looking to hire. Iowa Workforce Development and the West Des Moines Development Corporation are hosting the second annual job expo!

    A friend that was there told me that several of the booths he went up to, that the people manning them told him that they weren't taking applications at this time.

    It's a conspiracy I tell you!
    Seriously though, I know they have to be there, but I wonder how much nepotism & cronyism goes on at these functions.

    I hate to be a debbie downer but that's what I'm hearing too. Companies not hiring or that most of the booths are recruiting firms who have no jobs to place in you at.

    They are headhunter trolls that just want you in their resume database so they can call on you later if they think they can place you.


    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin 1775
