Fall 2003 Edition- September 2003 Volume 3

Volunteers: The Power Source of Associations
It didn't start out as being very "voluntary". I was a bored 14-year-old anticipating a summer of sitting on the couch and watching soap operas the summer my mother sent me off to volunteer. There was no way, she said, that she was going to be stepping over my prone body for three months. More ...

Navigating the Waters of Corporate Ethics
At some point in your career, you'll be asked to do some thing you know is wrong. It could happen because some harassed manager is trying to cut corners, or it could be because the organization itself has a culture of unethical be-haviour.

Each year, many companies spend far more on recruiting replacement employees than investing in keeping the star employees they already have on staff. More ...

So You Want to Be a Recruiter?
Having been in the business of recruiting for the past seven years, I find it very interesting when talking to people who say "I wouldn't mind doing what you do." Generally, I ask why. Most of the time the response I get is, "Well, I like working with people." Depending on my mood, I pose the question, "What does recruiting have to do with people?" I mean, isn't recruiting a really cleverly disguised sales job? More ...
