  • Grew up in East Millinocket at the foot of Mt Katahdin Graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Degree from the University of Maine Presque Isle in 1999. Moved to Portland Area in 2000 Over 10 years in Sales & Customer Service Keeping CS first, I provided honest opinions from their “go-to guy”.   I took this attitude with me into B2B sales at JiUS. I wanted to be guy that people came to mind when companies were considering hiring, even if they were using someone else to advertise. Similarly, I want to my company to be the thought leader in communities that are concerned with our industry, our business. Online, doing what I do now, this approach translates directly in my mind to Chris Brogan’s concept of “trust agents”.
  • We use social media to enhance YOUR recruiting, hiring, or job search.
  • Examples: Latest release was big news HR made simple, a recent partner has contributed content Tool of the month spotlight
  • Chamber events, college fairs, HR expos ets, active in event marketing – great info for all our peeps
  • Sorry I didn’t talk much on the technical aspects, tools etc, but I love to talk shop and am available anytime to do so! Blog contributors
