MSNBC Columnist Eve Tahmincioglu Rings the Recruiter

Today, our featured Recruiter podcast guest is Eve Tahmincioglu, MSNBC.com’s ‘Your Career’ columnist. She’s also the author of From the Sandbox to the Corner Office, and chief blogger at CareerDiva.net.

We called on Eve to tackle a topic rankling many recent grads: the concept of paying dues. The idea immediately conjures visions of getting coffee, making copies, and wishing you were making the 100K you think you already deserve.

But as Eve points out, paying dues can be essential to a long, productive career. That means young employees who try to sidestep this rite of passage might stunt their job growth before it even starts.

Eve breaks down exactly when and how you should -- and shouldn’t -- pay dues. She also shares top job-hunting tips, and offers advice to hiring managers about mentoring and training young workers.

This is a must-listen interview for any recent graduate or manager of recent grads. Listen online here, or download for later to your iPod (or other device). Either way, let us know what you think!
