John and I went to the AiChE Spring Convention in San Antonio this week and if you visited our booth there, you likely entered for a chance to win an Amazon Echo or an Echo Dot. Congratulations to our winners, Ben H. from Ohio and Jeff H. from New Jersey!

We had a brief e-mail issue this morning that has now been resolved so if you tried to send us an email and it bounced back, that’s why.
New post Adam wrote for LinkedIn regarding the outlook for the engineering job market in 2016. Check it out: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/engineering-job-market-outlook-2016-adam-krueger
Here’s an article Adam recently wrote for LinkedIn with a tip on how to prepare for interviews. If you’ve got a few minutes, give it a read: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/interviewing-tips-how-prepare-adam-krueger?trk=pulse_spock-articles
If you have been receiving my monthly eNewsletter then you know I am a frequent-flyer when it comes to concerts. Now I have a page on this site dedicated to those concerts that I’ve seen. I love to talk music so if you share that passion – let me know!

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.
**If you see any glitches, please let us know, we’re working on getting all of the state links to work correctly.
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
Just posted an article on LinkedIn today discussing some information I put together regarding salary trends in the engineering job market. If you’d like to see the article, please click on the link below. Thanks!
Every month in our monthly eNewsletter we publish book reviews of books that either Adam or John have recently read. We have a place on our site where we put those reviews for easy access and we just updated it as of today with a bunch of new entries. If you’re looking for a good book to read, check out that page:
