I could probably write a persuasive post comparing an expat assignment to a carnival and somehow work in the hamster angle but in this case the carnival and the expat never meet. And the hamster is a completely different topic.
The Carnival is, of course, the HR Carnival hosted by Anne Freedman over at HREOnline. It's a good one so if you haven't already seen it do click over.
The expat, alas, is not me, although I wrote a post about Expat compensation over at Compensation Cafe following a Cafe podcast. You can listen to the podcast here and read the post here.
And finally, check out Tim Sackett's funny post about becoming a D List blogger. He cautions that Laurie Ruettimann has already cornered the market on HR and cats so I was thinking of moving into the HR and hamsters space. What do you think, could that be big?
** Rubbing the soft furry underbelly of the hamster counts as a benefit.
