Our Holiday Newsletter has the following:
A Note from Cindi
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from my house to yours! I look forward to spending time with my family and seeing friends. Our Christmas Eve tradition is to drive around and look at all the beautiful lights and then have hot chocolate back at home. Christmas day after we open presents, I finish cooking while watching parades on TV, working puzzles or playing Scrabble. We have our meal about 1:30 as a lunch and then can relax and enjoy our company.
Enjoy your Holiday Season and have a very Happy New Year!!

Words of Wisdom
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~Charles Dickens
A Message from the President
Season’s Greetings to my Network
This is the time of year to reflect on all the good times and learning opportunities you’ve had in 2015. The SEMI Industry has been holding its own despite some of the Big OEM’s having RIF’s and some of them merging. It creates opportunities for a Recruiter to grow my network and meet a lot of new people. I did some Math on my career and I am pleased to be able to say that I have over 28 years of experience placing people in positions of increasing responsibility.
I want to wish everyone who reads this newsletter a Happy Holiday Season. In my culture we wish each other Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
We will not be in the office for the week before and after Christmas Day, a National Holiday here in the USA.
Take a minute today to say “Thank You” to those who have supported you this past year. The Power of Positive Thanking is a tool that I learned a long time ago from one of my Mentors, Zig Ziglar. It doesn’t take much effort to let those people know that they are special to you.
We now post our open positions on our Website and it’s made it easier for our Candidates to take a look with having to call. If you are looking for a job or know someone who is, please direct them to our site and ask them to give me a call. We don’t post “confidential” searches at our Clients request. I may just be working on a position but can only go over it with pre-qualified candidates.
2016 looks as promising as the fresh snow falling in the High Sierra. After years of drought we can really use all this water.
Here's to all of you in my network reading this, May 2016 be your best year ever and our Lord hold you and your Family in the palm of his hand.

The BEST Pumpkin Bread with Brown Butter Maple Icing
Author: Hayley Parker, The Domestic Rebel
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 50 mins
Total time: 1 hour 10 mins
Perfectly spiced, moist and tender, this Pumpkin Bread will soon become a family favorite! Leave it naked if you wish, or stud it with nuts - however, I prefer mine with this simple brown butter maple glaze. I'm sure you will, too!
