Attention Engineers, Chemists, Platers, etc.,
My new client is the Dow/DuPont company, as you may have been made aware over the last
several months due to my conducting a number of retained searches for them. They have
asked me to help out on another one in the Silicon Valley area. Please do NOT apply
directly to the company for this search, as that can potentially slow down the process
significantly. Also, if you have previously applied to DuPont or Dow, please let me know
when and where, for what position, etc.
Please have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
