I’m getting a lot of Google search hits on “pinewood+ derby”, which must frustrate folks looking for tips. To help these customers, here are a few of my favorite Pinewood Derby links:

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
