    Cindy, thanks for the comments and the additional websites. Agree 100%. It’s brutal out there right now. Even some of the top tier companies for HR like GE, P&G and Pepsi have slowed down their HR hiring or frozen it completely for the balance of the year. Like the housing market, there’s always a market for the best, top tier HR folks — so I’m optimistic.
    Best,
    Alan

    To post a candidate’s resume, please write “his/her background is” “he’s/she’s looking for” and attach a resume.
