I have been an executive recruiter for 21 years, trained as a chemical engineer (at CSUN), and experienced in the electrochemical
plating field for several years. My initial education was a philosophy degree from Princeton University, but I decided that it would be
more pragmatic to earn a second degree with some "market value".
In my perception, recruiting in this particular sector is improving considerably. In fact, the job-market (for my clients, at least) seems
to be about as good as I have every seen it. This may sound like a stark contrast to the unemployment statistics we've all been hearing
about for the past couple of years -- all the same, the demand for highly-skilled chemists and chemical engineers with graduate
degrees is sufficient that I am quite busy searching for talent.
My current searches have been posted in my blog, so please feel free to drop by and see if anything strikes your interest. Meanwhile, I
am very interested in other people's feedback on the employment market and their observations. Please feel free to comment and let
me know your thoughts!
