CEO Feedback on Effective Interviewing!®
INTERVIEW EDGE • JAN 1997
Executive watchers were shocked to learn that Alex Mandl, president of AT&T and heir apparent to the CEO job was leaving to join a tiny technology firm. He's the number two guy at a $50 billion company who is essentially moving to a start-up with no customers.
Mandl is no stranger to Interview EDGE® as he participated in one of our Effective Interviewing!® seminars when he was the chairman/CEO of Sea-Land Corporation. Here is what he said about our program: "I am only sorry I didn't do this twenty years ago." Sounds like a continuous learner to us!
An ironic note, David Beirne, the headhunter who convinced him to move, is the same one who moved William Razzouk from Federal Express to AOL. Nobody is infallible.
