What is the amazing stuff or ‘Moondust’, of the great recruitment consultant?

by waqeconsulting Leave a Comment

“I wish I could send you some,” says Apollo 17 astronaut Gene Cernan. “Just a thimbleful scooped fresh off the lunar surface. It’s amazing stuff.“ I use the term moondust because of these qualities: a kind of charge, magnetism and resilience, similar to the qualities of a great recruitment consultant. Although moondust (the thin layer that covers the moon) is a
