By Jerry Brenholz |   Tue, Feb 03, 2015 @ 08:30 AM

“They were the perfect candidate…had the exact skills…the hiring manager loved them…the compensation offered just wasn’t enough…they accepted a better offer.”

We hear this conversation daily inside our office, sometimes it seems like hourly, and it’s becoming more frequent. Of course we could shut the door, but it’s better to listen and learn.

Hey IT Hiring Managers! MSPs Can Be Your Friend

By ATR International |   Wed, Aug 20, 2014 @ 08:17 AM

The challenge has become so great that offering perks such as free gourmet lunches, five figure referral bonuses, and time to work on pet projects have become common place.
