  • The Green Knight: Jimmy Buffett in Paris
    met people from all over Europe North America and Australia Also as with any Buffett concert there were fans ranging from 6 years old to 60 with the entire spectrum of ages in between represented The concert itself was a blast Jimmy played for over two hours with no break The set list was excellent and the environment was intimate the entire audience was singing along and spirits were high The bar wasn t prepared to deal with the lush factor of Buffett fans as they ran out of wine halfway through the show and beer shortly after that No worries though we still had a blast between Buffett s singing joke telling and French speaking After three encores we all spilled out onto the Paris streets Even in the small crowd I bumped into a friend of mine from Rice small world The long walk back to the hotel in the fresh night air was a nice way to cap off a very very different Buffett concert experience If he comes back I will try to make it again next year and with a larger group that won t feel shy about tailgating in a random alleyway in a sketchy Paris neighborhood Photos and Videos Posted by Bryan Hassin at 17 41 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Jimmy Buffett Paris No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February

  • The Green Knight: Interview Failure
    to the point of avoiding some battles that offered low likelihood of success But there is much to learn from failure and these cases are no exception Both Shell and BT have offered to share feedback from the interviews with us next week This will help me understand why there wasn t a fit so I can focus my career search better Furthermore I look forward to learning the strong and weak points of how I came across so I can build them into subsequent interviews with companies for which there is a better fit Speaking of which I also talked with three product managers at Google this week and that position sounds like an excellent fit with both my skills and experience The recruiting process is daunting with up to 16 interview and some of them very technical but then so is the process for attaining most positions worth having Posted by Bryan Hassin at 16 39 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels career services failure No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January 1 2013 32 December 2 November 3 October 3 September 2 August 1 July 1 June 2 May 2 April 1 March 2 February 2 January 11 2012 35 December 2 November 1

  • The Green Knight: Blues, BBQ, Football, and Cool Weather
    is definitely cool and I have Buddy Guy playing in the background as I work on my career search Life is good Yesterday was my interview with Shell although it was less of an interview and more of an assessment They re less gung ho about renewables than I would have hoped but I think there may still be a fit I ll find out this evening whether or not I ve been invited to the second round which will be a much more intense group assessment Today I m talking with Google practicing for Thursday s case interview with British Telecom and discussing opportunities in Italy with IMD s corporate development staff And probably playing some ping pong too Posted by Bryan Hassin at 02 51 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels alternative energy career services imd No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January 1 2013 32 December 2 November 3 October 3 September 2 August 1 July 1 June 2 May 2 April 1 March 2 February 2 January 11 2012 35 December 2 November 1 October 4 September 3 August 6 July 4 June 3 May 4 March 3 February 1 January 4 2011 47 December 5 November 4 October 3 August 5 July

  • The Green Knight: Interviews
    in my profile to schedule an ad hoc interview It went well and we identified some positions where there could be a fit It was not all sunshine and rainbows however After talking with the Amazon rep it seems that the position I had identified there was not a great match for me They clearly thought likewise as they declined to interview me encouraging me to email a CV and cover letter Perhaps that s what they told everyone who wasn t a German speaker looking for supply chain positions for which they definitely were interviewing but I m less enthused about the opportunity with them regardless Tomorrow I interview with Shell hoping to learn about their commitment to sustainability and demonstrate to them my capacity achievement and relationships Then it is time to focus on off campus recruiting for a couple of days before my interview with British Telecom Bring it on Posted by Bryan Hassin at 15 41 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels alternative energy Bob Dylan career services imd Jimi Hendrix No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January 1 2013 32 December 2 November 3 October 3 September 2 August 1 July 1 June 2 May 2 April 1 March 2 February 2

  • The Green Knight: Fall Has Arrived
    fair Tuesday I interview with Shell and Thursday with British Telecom Should I succeed in the BT interview there will be another on Friday giving me just enough time to make it to Paris for the Jimmy Buffett concert If Shell likes me there will be another interview the following week when I m scheduled to be in Houston I suppose we ll just cross that bridge when we come to it I may also have an interview with Google this week but that is still to be confirmed This weekend I am spending my time researching the companies with which I have interviews and making sure I have a coherent story about the fit that I see with them As much as I like to think of myself as a good ad hoc speaker I m definitely much better when I am prepared In the meantime I m also sitting on 10 companies to which I need to begin marketing myself and over 200 companies that I haven t yet vetted enough to know whether or not they are worth pursuit You d think finding the right opportunity to help change the world wouldn t be this complicated Posted by Bryan Hassin at 06 34 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels alternative energy career services imd software No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014

  • The Green Knight: Deja Vu
    a great deal of work to do However it is interesting work so staring at it all day everyday is not onerous Time constraints bring the challenge of finding the right balance between sophisticated analysis and quality communication of results Growing anxiety over careers adds another dimension as teammates myself included are pulled in other directions This isn t unexpected though and I m sure we can address it after all we will face similar challenges in the real world Posted by Bryan Hassin at 14 52 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels ICP imd No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January 1 2013 32 December 2 November 3 October 3 September 2 August 1 July 1 June 2 May 2 April 1 March 2 February 2 January 11 2012 35 December 2 November 1 October 4 September 3 August 6 July 4 June 3 May 4 March 3 February 1 January 4 2011 47 December 5 November 4 October 3 August 5 July 2 June 4 May 8 April 2 March 5 February 7 January 2 2010 53 December 4 November 1 October 4 September 2 August 4 July 6 June 3 May 4 April 5 March 8 February 5 January 7 2009 78 December 5
