I am very pleased to have quite a few new job announcements this month. Hopefully the good news will continue.

I have received a lot of positive feedback on this column in the last month. I would especially like to thank Jason Harper (Divestco) for making a point of introducing himself to me at Divestco’s Christmas function and telling me how much he enjoys reading this column. You made my day Jason. I do put a lot of effort into getting announcements to share with the RECORDER readers. Having that recognized is a great feeling!
