Lots has changed in the last couple of months. First, my wife, Hannah, got a job at 3M after completing her PhD in Fiber and Polymer Science at NC State University with the Nonwovens Institute. She is now working in the Corporate Research Lab at 3M. Upon moving to Minneapolis, MN for Hannah’s job I transitioned work from Horizon Performance in Cary, NC to CEB | Talent Measurement Solutions in Minneapolis. I also proposed my dissertation, which should allow me to defend in August without having to register for another semester. Finally, the research team involved with the paper Examining Applicant Reactions to the Use of Social Networking Websites in Pre-employment Screening is being featured for the summer issue of the NC State Alumni Magazine. So, Dr. Lori Foster Thompson and I did an interview for the magazine and had pictures taken with Dr. Adam Meade for the feature. It was definitely a productive winter on the research front, I’m hoping that the summer brings more of the same and it seems to be off to a good start with progress on a collaboration with Richard Yentes on nonrespondents to an applicant reactions survey.
