So, being somewhat of a financial and economic ‘groupie’ (for lack of a better word), I come across articles in the financial world of companies that are expanding and hiring, or just outright hiring. So I figured I’d post them here as I find them. Feel free to add stuff you come across with as well. The posts most likely will not have all the info to apply for a job, but at least it will give you an idea of where to start looking. And some may not be immediate, but that may give you time to prepare. Hope this helps you all, Michelle

The world’s fourth-largest semiconductor maker said in a press release that it will break ground on the new project in Clay, New York, near Syracuse, starting next year.

This notice, and the IBM notice, are MAJOR. I think folks in electronics-related businesses are finally waking up to how vulnerable we are with so much chip production being offshore. We really need a better balance.

Hey DeeAnn, I’ve been saying that for years too. Too much penny wise and pound foolish has left most of our electronic eggs in one tenuous basket. Marg
