Greetings. Thank you for reading my first blog. I will be doing these weekly, focusing on topics that are of interest to anyone who has a career in the plastics industry, or is responsible for hiring and managing others. Well, that's just about everybody who would be on the website or getting the e-newsletter, isn't it? Every week we'll cover things like:

Talent Talk: Weekly Jobs and Business Blog
  • How to find your dream job

  • How can my large company be more proactive in finding talent?

  • How can my small company get good people?

  • Is your career getting stale?

  • Who's hiring?

  • M&A activity and what it means to you

  • Which companies are expanding their business

  • Is this non-compete agreement binding?

  • Social networking

We will also have conversations with people who are shaping the plastics business, talk about trends and what the future may hold, and look at who is expanding their business. I may wander a bit, but one common theme will be an emphasis on the POSITIVE things that are going on in the industry. If you want to cry in your beer you have a wide selection of nightly news shows to choose from.

The other theme will be J-O-B-S, because that's something very important to most of us. If you're independently wealthy and don't plan to work anymore, this blog may not be for you, but then again you've probably got extra time on your hands.

Please leave a comment or e-mail me with any ideas you would like to see discussed relative to jobs or business issues. Also, if you know someone (or yourself) who would be good to talk about jobs, business expansion, and the like feel free to refer them. Help me spread the good news about what is going on in your company and in the plastics industry!
