Communicate Effectively, Lifestyle
An interesting piece on skipping the entire interview process. 100s nay 1000s of people give and take interviews on a daily basis. They're either interviewing to hire new candidates or candidates hoping to land a new job. The problem with interviews is that it almost always doesn't surmount to a good understanding of the interviewer. Sometimes it'll take a few months to really know the candidates likes and dislikes.

Check out more details on the link below. GoPro on Monday announced a new $400…
