ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING, NEW PROCESSES AND APPLICATIONS
PRESENTED BY JACK DISPENZA, DESIGN RESULTS LLC
Printing three-dimensional parts has been common-place in large enterprise for many years. Stereolithogra-phy (SLA), fused deposition modeling (FDM) selectivelaser sintering (SLS) and related processes have grownto a $3 plus billion dollar business which is set toquadruple by 2018. Additive manufacturing is expand-ing from sample prototypes to functional parts and put-
ting plastic, ceramic and metal part manufacturing in the hands of anyone,not just the larger enterprise. Processes have daily improvements in reso-lution, size capabilities and material choices opening the door to many newinnovative applications. This presentation will focus on the new capabilities,evolving trade space and opportunities.
Jack Dispenza is a Fellow of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) andPresident of Design Results, LLC in Long Valley, N.J. In addition to beingour speaker, Jack is one of the candidates for our Board of Directors, soyou can view his full biography on page 4. Jack also authored an article onadditive manufacturing in our Nov/December issue. If you missed it, checkit out in our archives.
VOLUME 53 NUMBER 7 APRIL 20152
In March the section meeting was held at Rutgers, and panel members (Mike Fisch, Jennifer Markarian,Brian Gibson, Sal Monte, and Mark Lavach) shared their career experiences with the members of the Rut-gers Student Chapter. Mark challenged the students with some advice for their job search, which is sum-marized in this newsletter on page 10. Panelists and other industry members in the audience answeredquestions from the students. Many thanks to Len Krauskopf, the professional section's liaison to the studentchapter and a passionate champion of helping students, who helped organize the evening and led thepanel discussion.
Our section leadership considers our Student Chapter very important as potential future members of the plastics industry andSPE, and in support of this, Len presented a $1000 donation to the Rutgers Materials Science and Engineering Department,which was accepted by Manish Chhowalla, Associate Department Chair, on behalf of the department. (see photo on page 9)
Rich Bradley also made a very special pres-entation of $2500 in honor and memory of hislate wife, Mary Bradley, to the Student Sec-tion, which was accepted by Student ChapterPresident, Rachit Mehta. This donation was acombination of contributions from the Vinyl Di-vision, Shawnee Chemical, Rich Bradley, andthe Palisades-New Jersey Section. The Stu-dent Chapter and department were verygrateful for the gifts. Dr. Chhowalla, a personalfriend of Andrew Yacykewich, also expressedhis gratitude for the section’s concern for An-drew’s family.
Another way our section supports students isthrough annual scholarships, as described onpage 5. The deadline for scholarship applica-tions is coming soon, on April 30, so if you are

The Hiring Process
A personal perspective from Mark Lavach, as presented to the Rutgers Student Chapter of the SPEYou may not realize this, but companies spend lots of money hiring people. And… they invest money developing strategies tohire the right people. What’s really bad is when they hire the WRONG person; not only did the hiring process go bad, but thenthere is all of the on the job training, and investments in that person’s career that just goes down the drain. It is never too early to start career planning. The earlier you start, the more equipped you will be. Some fundamental decisionsfor consideration:
¥ Your passion (what is it? it will play a role in your success) ¥ academic vs. industrial¥ big company vs. small company ¥ technical vs. business ¥ geography and travel
While you are still in school, start generating a track record of accomplishments. Grades matter (to a point) and clubs / activitiesmatter (to a point). Start building networks, these can be great influencers not only in getting a job, but furthering your career aswell. Identify mentors who can help you throughout your career, depending on your career this may/may not be your parents.But – how can you differentiate yourself from the person sitting right next to you? What makes you special? Why should I hireyou? What to you bring to the table that the other guy does not? You need two very different skill sets, hard and soft. Hard skillspertain to knowledge – guess what, this is not likely a differentiator. You must assume your competition has similar skills (andmaybe better than yours). Knowledge describes “what” you have learned and is a base requirement for all jobs. What is equallyimportant, but often understated is the “how” and “why”, this is often what people look for during the interview process. The“how” and “why” are softer skills often called competencies, and comprise things like leadership, accountability, commitment,influence, problem solving, and multitasking. These softer skills are often what you need to demonstrate in order to get a job,to keep a job, and to grow in a job.Applying for a jobApply for jobs that you are interested in, AND meet the base qualifications for. Don’t apply for something you are not qualifiedto do. In all but the rarest of cases, employers don’t tend to stretch hiring practices. They may look at your potential for growth,but will rarely hire someone who does not have the minimum experience required for the position. Write a strong, personalizedcover letter, and start selling yourself. Focus on what makes you unique and right for the position you are applying for. Why can’tthey exist without you? The resume should look professional, be accurate, and tailored to the position being applied for. Wherepossible, really describe what you did. For example, don’t say “worked in lab doing tensile test” when you might be able to say,“Ran tensile test in accordance with ASTM D638 to determine the modulus of PVC deckboards in accordance with ICC-ESxxx).” Do you see the difference this makes?InterviewingPrepare yourself for the interview:
¥ Know something about the company¥ Know something about the position (can get during the phone screen)¥ If possible, know something about the hiring manager¥ Be able to describe in detail what, why, and how you did things
Be ready for all sorts of questions based on your hard and soft skills: ¥ What’s the hardest thing you ever had to do, and why?¥ What’s the worst decision you ever had to make, and why?¥ Tell me about a time you had to make a tough decision
Interviews are often about a lot more than the “what”; interviewers want to know the “how” and “why”. Demonstrate that, and –ask questions, one of the absolute worst things you can do is have no questions for an interviewer. It sends a very strong messageabout you.
Follow-up with a nice closing letter reviewing why you feel you are the right person for the job, exhibit confidence. Give themcontact info should they have any more questions. After their interview, try and remain in their sights; it is OK to follow-up oncein a while to see where they are in the decision process. Confirm your interest in the position.It is a full time job to get a job. Only the candidates that meet a company’s needs will be hired for that position. You could beredirected to another position that the company feels you are more suited for if you leave a good impression. Be open to considerthat. Only the candidates whose personal passions match the company’s needs will be successful. Longer term, this passionmanifested in continued demonstration of the soft skills will lead you to career success.
