Spent the evening with a great group of MBA grads-to-be at NCSU last night at "Inside the Mind of an Executive Search Recruiter – Panel Discussion, Q&A, and Reception" organized by John Hutchings.

It was very well organized, moderated and if these young people are typical examples of the caliber of people coming out of B-schools, the future is bright for all of us.

Thanks for inviting me to participate.

I just saw the scene in Moneyball where the little girl sings this and it's absolutely precious... oh, did I say my pregnant daughter is here - trapped by the snow - with her Mom and I. Oh, and did I say she's having a little girl she's going to call "Lily"? Oh, and did I say I'm very happy? Maybe you could tell.

I just rated Thor: The Dark World An IMAX 3D Experience a "Go" on Fandango. What did you think of it?

Awesome article! Was on a call with a rookie rep years ago who kept talking even after the customer said "I'll take it" - 3 times!

Story
Tagline
Executive Recruiter for Sales, Marketing and other key $100K+ roles (aka: OldSalesGuy)
Introduction

As for me, the OldSalesGuy, I bring 16+ years of executive search experience in sales, marketing and C-level roles to the table. My network of connections and clients is deep AND wide. As you can see by my profile on LinkedIn, I have a substantial network - currently at 15,100+ direct connections and counting. I’m the consummate social networker with a substantial number of followers on Google+, TheLadders, Facebook and Twitter all of which I utilize in my recruiting efforts.
 
In fact, I have been designated to be Mergis’ Subject Matter Expert regarding the use of social networking in recruiting. Our corporate PR department also frequently uses me as the go-to person for interviews with by a variety of media outlets including Investor's Business Daily, Monster, CareerBuilder, CollegeRecruiter.com, as well as articles for various recruiting blogs... including my own.

And, I’ve also presented numerous times on topics surrounding recruiting in the 2.0 world – including to new-hire training classes. Yes… I too see the irony of a 65 year old guy teaching the “kids” how to use social networking as a recruiting tool but maybe that helps explain why I’ve branded myself: OldSalesGuy.

My wife and I hadn't been back in a few months... can't really figure out why. But we've now been 3 or 4 times in the last couple of months and it's always been spectacular. The food is just incredible... my wife and I really enjoy the fried green tomatoes appetizer. I had the trout last time and it was superb. Just made reservations to celebrate my birthday there tonight. We've got two favorite servers there and request one or the other when going: Stephanie and James... they are wonderful young folks with a real zeal and talent for their work and their customers.
