Congratulations to SIOP member Andrew Imada in Carmichael,

People on the Move
Jim Sharf, formerly of Aon Consulting and long-time contributor to TIP,
has recently changed jobs and is now President of Sharf & Associates: Employment Risk
Advisors focusing on selection and appraisal litigation support. He can be reached at his
new number (703) 684_4886.
Dianne Brown Maranto informed us that she is resigning from her
position with APA to pursue her own consulting practice in I-O and testing applications.
She's been with APA's testing office for 9 years, with prior experience at both Edison
Electric Institute and HumRRO. She will be on contract with APA to complete the revision
of the test standards as project director, but will otherwise be consulting with The
Maranto Group. She can now be reached at email@example.com,
Fran Karamouzis recently joined Stromberg Consulting, a Fortune 100 HR
consulting firm, as a Senior Consultant. Her expertise is centered on strategic consulting
emphasizing the linkage between business strategy, operational strategies, human resource
practices, and technology initiatives.
Steve Ashworth wrote to let people know that he has left rainy
and cloudy Seattle and Microsoft (he actually saw a car on the road there that was covered
in mold!) for the sunnier climate of San Diego. He is now the Manager of Personnel
Research and Measurement for Sempra Energy in San Diego. Steve can be reached at SAshworth@sempra.com
Books and Things
Julian Barling of the School of Business at Queen's University in
Kingston, Ontario wrote to announce the publication of a book he recently edited with
Kevin Kelloway. The full citation is Barling, J., & Kelloway, E.K. (Eds.) (1999). Young
workers: Varieties of experience. Washington, DC. American Psychological Association.
The authors can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
(Julian Barling) or email@example.com.
There was a mistake inadvertently made in the opening line of last
issue's Real World column by Janine Waclawski. It should have read "Welcome to
the penultimate year in the 20th century" as several individuals
(including this author) have pointed out.
