TAICEP At Your Desk Series

 
“If something is interesting and not useful, credential evaluators will throw tomatoes and rotten lettuce at you.  If something is boring and useful, credential evaluators will throw roses at you.   If something is interesting and useful, they’ll place laurel leaves on your head and  feed you grapes.”  Musings from TAICEP’s first executive director.
