I receive resumes across my desk every day…e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y. Some of them are good, some of them not so much. Some of the resumes come with a note telling me what they are looking for. Some of them come to me with no name nor contact information on them…seriously.

I want to take a few minutes to talk about these resumes and people who send them.
