   Greetings Dear Readers!

Yes. It is the second day of the new year; and yes, this is the second half of December 2002 news. My only excuse is that I got carried away with migrating content and forgot to write to you about what was going on. Just as when I do my weeding into the after hours of dusk, I kept saying, "But just one more."

As one year winds down and a new one approaches the horizon, Career and Executive Recruiting Advice continues its transplanted maturity. More additions are on the site. They're about a 50/50 split between CERA and The Library.

Guest Articles
You'll also want to check the newest articles on the site. Three guest articles that are "have to read," whether you're a job seeker or a recruiter, are:

  • Doing What Sells by Barbara Ling. She expertly explains the strategies that are effective in making a sale. Applicable to whether you're selling a client on using your services or a potential employer on hiring you.
  • Jim Rapson explains to us Rapport: How to Get It. The way he explains NLP makes the whole process seem effortless. Again, you'll want to know about these techniques for any situation. It's bound to help you win your audience.
  • Brian Whitfield then explains the art of Managing Large Placement Orders. Even if it isn't a placement order but a huge project, you'll want to follow his organization strategies so you can wear the successful outcome on your lapel.
Additional site additions and modifications are covered a little later in this newsletter.
