The Week That Was – 10/5/12

It’s been raining all week here in the Boston area, but the sun is finally out today and the BLS says unemployment has dropped to 7.8% – a 3 1/2 year low. The main thing I’m thinking about as this week draws to a close is my trip next week to Orlando.  No, I won’t be visiting the divine rodent, but I will be enjoying our annual sales kickoff with several hundred revved up members of our field organization.  We had a great FY12 and all signs point to an equally successful year ahead.  Higher employment is good for everybody, but especially if you make your living in workforce management.
