Happy Holidays from The Fordyce Letter

My boss has kindly given us a few days off around Christmas to celebrate with our families. But before I take off to enjoy spending time with my family, I want to wish each and every one of you Happy Holidays!

This has been a fun six months for me, getting settled in to a role that was held for over twenty years by an industry legend. One can never replace someone with that much industry influence. I still occasionally get an email from Paul with encouraging words and I love the fact that he still remains interested in and observant of the business.

I appreciate the warm welcome all of you have given to me along with the encouragement, contribution, and community you have so warmly shared. I thank you for helping keep Fordyce a must-read for recruiting professionals!

I am very excited about the coming year, and I will plan to share some of my thoughts in a wrap-up article during the last week of 2010 here on FordyceLetter.com.

In the meantime, I hope that your clients pay their balances to you before 12/31, that your candidates ace all of their interviews, and that you get to really enjoy quality time with your families, friends, and loved ones over the next couple of weeks.

Happy Holidays everyone!
