Well, apparently what comes around goes around.

I spoke with both of those individuals recently and, just one year later, they are with different companies!

And they weren’t the only ones to abandon Alcoa for greener pastures.

I think that this signals a good time to be pursuing a purchasing career. Talented and qualified people are seeming to have an easy time finding rewarding purchasing jobs.
