Jim Cantore, Meteorologist at The Weather Channel, shows us what a perfect job match looks like in this video of him out in one of the worst winters on record. We should all be so so fortunate to love being in an office, construction site, hospital, restaurant, oil rig, or wherever the heck it is we earn a living - as he does in a snowstorm.

Introduction

I work with organizations that aspire to be employers of choice, are interested in attracting candidates who will develop into employee brand advocates that drive growth and continued success, embrace diversity, desire a culture of innovation and excellence, want to build rich internal and external communities and reward superior performance with celebrity.
