Hey Judge and Foster,
It looks like I can't make the Frisco Connect meeting today. I wanted to announce that I landed at a company called Vizient, doing marketing Communications.
I landed the position straight from a job posting (an anomialy, but I'll take it). They seem like a good company from their reviews and interview process. So I'm looking forward to starting on Monday.
It took nine months of searching and the process was tough but a good life lesson that I will continue as I work. I'd like to thank the church and leadership of Frisco connect for the fellowship, networking and support.
Foster, Mike, Alvin, Tom, Charlie, and Jane,
I wanted to let you know that I started working last week. I am working as a consultant at Sabre. The consulting company is Experis and I met them in person a few months ago when I attended the Ft. Worth PMI Chapter's Career Development Day. Experis was one of the vendor booths that I visited. They called me about the Project Manager position at Sabre a few weeks ago and I got the job based on one phone interview with the hiring manager.
It feels great to be back working at a large global company in a headquarters setting, which is what I am used to, up until my last job working for a small private company. I am very excited and hopeful that this position at Sabre will convert into a permanent position. Initially it is a 1 year contract.
I want to thank each of you for your leadership and guidance. I was very impressed with the entire organization and pleased that it was faith based. Please know that you truly do inspire us to be hopeful of a great future, along with equipping us with the tools we need to fulfill that goal--weekly meetings, great presentations, resume help, LinkedIn help, interviewing help, networking, etc. Job searching can be very lonely when at home on the computer.
I was very thankful to have such a positive place to go each week, to be connected with others in similar situations. I no longer felt alone and always was energized when I left!! When I hear of someone who is unemployed, I immediately tell them about the Southlake Group and that they need to attend.
Thank you!! May you be blessed for all you do to help others.
