eBay Using Social Media to Plan for the Future

I had a great chat today with the Head of eBay Talent Management based out of Ireland.  His role is to conduct a global search for top talent and to find out if they would be interested in working for EBay in the future.  At any point in time he has a number of live executive searches he is conducting.

What is intersting is that he found me via linkedin.  He reached out, contacted me and we had a chat.  While i am not interested in changing jobs at the moment, i know people that would be suitable and i will the eBay guy in touch with them.
