Laura George

Laura George began her human resource management career in 1989. Her "gut" feelings have prompted her to give further consideration to less-than-stellar candidates while bypassing candidates whose presentations looked good. She's also learned all the tricks of the trade, such as how HR departments weed out résumés with software, how they flush out incorrect data, and what kinds of companies advertise globally and hire locally. 

Laura's job-search knowledge comes from both sides of the human resource desk. She is, as Barbara Ehrenreich terms it, a disposable white-collar worker -- a professional who has found the world of work to be a revolving door more than once due to downsizing. Therefore, her job-search advice comes from her own employment searches, as well as from her experience in helping many colleagues find employment. 

Laura has worked in several industries, at both small and mid-sized companies, as well as at a Fortune 100 company with thousands of employees worldwide. She currently owns her own consulting company, LHG Consulting, Inc., which provides human resource expertise to small businesses in northeast Ohio (see She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in labor economics, and has completed work toward a master's in the same field. Laura lives in Ohio and enjoys cycling and exploring her spiritual side.
