I am pleased to let you know that after almost 2 months of job hunting, I have landed! I started this job on Thursday, April 30 & won't be able to make your meeting as I'll be at work. I'm very excited to be back to work in technology sales! This is a good opportunity with a small IT company that is growing. My title is: Inside Sales Account Executive. I'll be selling wireless & cloud networking services to VARS (resellers). This is a new position. The company had only one opening. I'm not going to mention the name of this business & I won't add this to my LinkedIn profile for at least 90 days. I want to see how the job goes and make sure it works out.
I'm sharing this good news to let you and your attendees know that the job market in the Dallas area is definitely opening up and there is hope out there! I found this job at the Richland College Job Fair. I went to this job fair not expecting much as I've never had good luck with job fairs. This time was different. This was a larger job fair with several good name companies. I never would have known about this small start up company if I hadn't attended this job fair. The moral of my story is that It pays to try every avenue and look outside the box.
Thanks to you Foster and the Career DFW networking groups for all the good work you do. Keep up the great work! I've learned a lot from the guest speakers. Thanks to the job seekers I've met over the years. They have given me good suggestions and feedback which I've used to polish and perfect my job search. Best wishes to all the job seekers to keep at it and not give up!
