Shows Calendar Updated

Check it out…  On the home page, under “Industry Watch.”  Choose “Shows.”

I can see a number of interesting re-alignments since we last reviewed the big industry get-togethers.  Multiple shows are “co-locating,”  as they call it.

Too early for me to jump to conclusions, but I’ll nose around and let you know what I find out.

Open For Suggestions

I’m still tracking down shows that, well, just seem to have a new name.

I think I’m getting those sorted out.

Also, there’s a bunch I need to add.

As I do that, I may take a run out and make some new friends.  I’ll try to give you an early Heads Up if I do.

Any suggestions you might have, please drop me a line.

We can always use some great advice!

2013 Starts Strong

This reminds me of last year’s hot start, but by the time this year winds down, I’ll bet 2012 will look placid compared to the 2013 roller coaster we’ve started on.

Right now, I have specific requests for Controls Engineers in TX, IL, and CA, with open ended requests, kind of, for engineers across the country. Chemical Engineers with process experience should give me a shout.

A sales opportunity is opening up with a big time stamper.

Looks like I’ll be packing my bags, soon.

I’ll try to get info out on Featured Careers, as I’m able.

Stay tuned.

Circle Me On Google Plus

In Google+, just search on my name… Ted Dieck.

Pretty clever, huh?

On the one hand, I think we’re all still figuring out Google+.

On the other hand, it runs rings around FaceBook.

Here’s The Difference…


FB is a little unruly about their rules.

Also, the purpose of FB is to connect with people you already know.

Google Plus

G+ has excellent controls to help keep you out of trouble.
And the whole circles strategy is terrific.

The purpose of G+ is to help you find and get to know people you didn’t know before.

Give it a try!

Hooked On Hospice

When I was first introduced to Hospice of Cincinnati, I knew very, very little about the organization, the philosophy, or the industry. I knew, for sure, we would be working together at some point.  And I had less than an hour to make a connection. Otherwise, I was headed to the airport to catch a late flight home.   Continued…

When Drugs Meet Notes

Hmmm.  It appears I had a bit of a buzz on when I attended a 1:00p meeting in Cincinnati a couple of months ago. A dentist had just pulled (yanked) (extracted) one of my favorite molars. Thankfully, I wasn’t able to speak.

This is what I actually wrote, shortly before I sat down with some medical people…   Continued…

October Update

I have a nice opportunity for a Senior Automation Engineer.

Check out the Featured Careers section for details. If you like what you see, give me a call.

For me, this past week has been something of a refueling stop at home in Florida.

Over the past month and a half, I’ve been in Ohio. And, in a couple of days, I’m heading back. (This time with winter clothes!)

Thank goodness for cell phones and the internet.

Thanks also for your kind wishes.

If you’ll be in the Cincinnati area, be sure to let me know. I’ll probably be in and out over the next few months.

Contract Engineers

We may be changing the game plan soon.

I may be providing search services for a good client who will be needing groups of senior level engineers. On contract. (Is that you? Contact me!!!)

That service is different for me. For over a decade, I have exclusively searched to fill full time permanent positions.

In the meantime, it hasn’t escaped me that Washington D.C. has made contracting the low commitment preference. More than one of my engineering candidates has hopped in with the happy idea that I should front the money and file the paperwork, in hopes that contract offerings would have a happy ending.

An Interesting Solution

A good friend of mine has made a much better suggestion. I might simply modify my search services to accommodate contract positions. For sure, I know enough engineers on the contract side.

We can go into detail, sometime, if you’d like.

For now, here’s what is important…

Work Flow Matters To Contract Services

To be prepared for one client who needs a dozen or two senior level contract engineers, I clearly have to identify who’s available, and then I have to track their work flow and availability.

Obviously, keeping good talent busy is key to having the better engineers available when my larger client needs them.

We’re just getting started, here.

I’m interested in your thoughts. Certainly, if you want to be a part of this effort, please give me an early Heads Up.

Orlando – Last Week of April

I’ll be in Orlando, seeing some friends the last week of April.

Of course, the CSIA gang is convening their Executive Conference at Universal Studios.

No word when the movie is coming out, but in the meantime, I’ll be catching up with members, as they’re available.

If you’ll be in the area, be sure to let me know…
