No mention of Google+ !!! Most mature candidates would be available on this platform. Off-course you need to be a mature HR to find the gems here.

I recently leased a new car from Thomas Acura, and all I can say is that the experience was a most pleasant one. I never felt pressured, felt that all of my requests were met, and Fernando was one of the best car dealer salesperson I have ever engaged with. It was worth the drive out from Irvine to Covina, so if you live in Southern California, give Fernando a call - and tell him Neal sent 'ya ;-)
