New Feature: Jobs By State

Ok – so this isn’t a “new” feature, we’ve had things like this before – let’s just say this version of it is a lot cleaner looking than previous attempts. Towards the top of the homepage, you now see two buttons, one says “Jobs By State”, the other says “Submit Resume”. If you click on “Jobs By State”, you are now taken to a page with a map of the United States. If you click on a specific state on that map – you will be taken to a list of engineering openings within that state. The jobs you will see are taken from a couple of places…some of them are my own jobs that I have with my clients and some of the jobs are jobs that other recruiters in my network have. In either case, you are the winner because this is access to a lot of jobs that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to provide you access to on my own. The application process is simple, if you see a job you like, click on the job title, review the description and click “apply” at the bottom of the page. Here’s a link to the new “Jobs By State” page.

Some Chemical Industry Economic News

Here are some of the chemical industry economic data I have seen recently.

From ChemicalProcessing.com, the latest CPI snapshot (ending April 2015): http://www.chemicalprocessing.com/articles/2015/chemical-processing-economic-snapshot-ending-april-2015/

From the American Chemistry Council via ChemWeek, chemical production was flat in April: http://www.chemweek.com/sections/departments/vital_statistics/ACC-US-chemical-production-flat-in-April_70637.html

Not really economic news, but still interesting – the intersection of Big Data with the Chemical Industry: http://www.chem.info/blogs/2015/05/how-big-data-influencing-chemical-manufacturing

The drop in oil prices has been bad for some industries, but good for others, like chemical manufacturing in Louisiana (and elsewhere): https://www.businessreport.com/article/plummeting-oil-prices-spur-manufacturing-surge-louisiana
