Welcome to the newly fashioned website for The Alexander Group. We are delighted by and proud of our new Internet home, and hope that you found (quickly) what you've been looking for. If you haven't, well, please feel free to offer some (kindly worded) constructive feedback.
We also introduce to you a newly fashioned and just plain new TAG blog. We hope that with this page we can give you a more interactive glimpse into who we are and what we do. And of course, we will provide our thoughts and advice on recruiting and search - we have seen a lot and we've got something to say!
Now that we have introductions out of the way, I want to talk about a very important topic. Television. If you are one of the mighty few who claim to not have a tv and never watch the stuff, terrific for you! I can only imagine what productive things you have been up to. I, however, have softened the edges of my brain cells over the years watching plenty of the stuff. And like many of my fellow Americans, I am a fan of shows like Grey's Anatomy, E.R., Law & Order, The Wire, and the 14 varieties of C.S.I. Lots of shows about hospitals, law firms and court rooms, and cops and cops and cops. And of course you have countless regular run of the mill office-setting shows (see: The Office. That's probably all you need to know in that category.) And more than one of us at TAG are closet reality television watchers.
At The Alexander Group, we strongly believe that there is a big missed opportunity. We've talked about this for years. Where is the executive search show? Honestly, the things we have seen candidates and clients do... well, really, the things we have seen our selves do under stress... the show would write itself. Sitcom or hour long drama? Or both? WB show? Or should we target the upmarket, high production values of HBO or Showtime? We've got a lot of details to hammer out, and a lot of scripts to produce. Or maybe not even scripts, if we are thinking reality tv. Just not in my office, please.
What do you think? Would you be interested in a show about an executive search firm? Are we just flattering ourselves? Ok, fine, what about your field of work?
