Hiring Made Human – Smart, actionable weekly email newsletter for jobseekers, recruiters and talent acquisition professionals.
I really hope you will enjoy it here.

On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that unemployment jumped to 4.4% in March, up from 3.5% in February, which was a 50-year low.
