Noreen returns to Leslie Silver’s call on the subject of cost of company to hire/purchase a new staff member from Teamika’s company.

The three talk of workers returning to the working world to pursue the careers they originally wanted but possibly couldn’t achieve.
Noreen introduces the topic of age and how that may affect the hiring process. Teamika talks on the subject of learning how to interview rather than preaching the resume. Teamika speaks on the hard question of “tell me about yourself”.

Leslie brings up the critical dilemma of male personal assistants and how men have difficulty ordering men around.
