Murshed Chowdhury I've been in the recruiting industry for more than a decade now. And as the CEO of a company I co-founded, I have the freedom to excuse myself from 1:15-2:15 p.m. every Friday to attend Jumu'ah —a weekly congregational prayer service for the Muslim community.

Całemu wydarzeniu towarzyszy stres w końcu staramy się o lepszą, ciekawszą i lepiej płatną pracę. Prawda? Co ciekawe, portali rekrutujących i samych narzędzi ułatwiających rekrutację na rynku jest wiele, a brak na nim narzędzi dla osób rekrutowanych.
