Younger dd has become the office manager, and has gotten back about half the cut in pay she took to join this firm, after only 4 weeks.

Hi Sam,
Bravo to your DD!Happy to read she is gaining ground on her old salary!

Will she be flying to CA to teach any of her responsibilities?
We have lost over 8K jobs here withe NASA ending the shuttle missions... Sadly a number of suicides followed the last letters. Really tuff times we all are living in

I too do hiring. I can't say I am want to hire everyone. Last week I a woman tell me: "I need this job more than a dead man needs a hole in the ground"... Talk about stunned into silence ..all I could think to respond with was "that is a creative use of language"
What would any of you have said??

I can relate to your DD's feeling of wanting to hire them all.... I've never had so many applications for entry level, low paying positions as I've had in the last few months.

It sounds like she's becoming wise beyond her years - perhaps in not the easiest way! However, this must really make her feel good, that she's obviously shown her own worth, even in this most competitive of markets. Kudos to her!!
