This AMA covers 6 questions:

What looks better on a resume, 8 years at one job and a good recommendation from the manager, or 2 years at four separate jobs with good recommendations from all of the managers?

Are there headhunters that only charge money if they land you a job? 

If you are given a written notice at work, should you be looking for another job, could that mean they wanna get rid of you?

Should you include a description of a company on your resume?

Is recruiting a dead-end job?

      I am not an expert on government jobs but will try to seek one out. In the mean time, this is a link I hope you find helpful and not BS

      Thank you Jeff!. Btw I referred you to 2 big hitters who need and wanr to move. The videos and service you provide on YouTube is amazing. The way you teach people to articulate and the proper syntax is so valuable! Why arent they teaching that in college??? Its gold! I look forward to your videos. Those questions you advise to ask at the end of the interview are the right cross left hook to win by ko. The interviewers were stunned in a great way. Thank you. Plus your voice and approach is uplifting positive

      @Kent Moxley Thanks, Kent. Watching my content (and when I do 1 on 1 coaching, of course) is world class work. Glad to help.
