As we’ve discussed, I have been told I will no longer be working for Polaroid. After 34 years of hard work I have been told I am no longer part of the organization’s plans as they make the next transition. While all the details are not complete, it appears that I will be working at another location for a couple of months to transition a person to work there, before the end of the year, I will be out of a job. Is there anything you recommend I do?
Thank you for asking. I really appreciate that.
I was just rejected by that Texas company that I interviewed.
I just moved to Boston this week. I am now living in a friend’s
place.I think Boston may have more chances than Buffalo.
I have received several phone calls from a recruiter. It seems that a lot
big biopharm company in Boston will recruit contract workforce for their
entry level position. Is that right?

Thank you for telling me the Blog. I am reading it now.
I just received an email from Eastman Chemical Company. I sent my resume to the company two days ago to apply for an analytical chemist position. The email is about Background Check Authorization Request, which asks for my school transcripts, addresses I lived in past seven years, social security number, as well as birthday. Is it normal for companies to ask for these personal information before they interview candidates?
I am just back from my site-visit. The Ph. D. presentation and all the interviews went extremely well.
They are going to see 3 more candidates in next 2 weeks and will make a decision by the end of July.
Thank you very much for your help and suggestions.
Thanks for getting back! The HR manager of a company from Orange County, CA called me about an hour ago. I had sent them my resume about 2 weeks ago. We spoke for about a half hour. She said she liked my resume. She asked me why I had left my last position…
She will have a scientist contact me at 6 PM EDT on Friday for a second phone interview. I will spend a good bit of Thursday reading interview preparation books, however, I do think it also in my interest to fit in a couple of hours doing something soothing for relaxation. If you have any ideas please feel free to pass them on.
Thanks for all your help!
