Landing Stories

Eddie Cash has landed his dream job.

Hi Foster,

 Please pass along to everyone at Frisco Connect that I have landed and will start working this Monday, 19June at The Travel Leaders Group https://www.travelleadersgroup.com at their Las Colinas office.  I get to pursue my passion as a data analytics professional with the title of Senior Business Analyst.  I will announce officially at the Southlake Focus Group tomorrow (Thursday).  I got this position due to networking with former work colleagues, plus applying all of the resume, networking and interview coaching I received from the Southlake, Frisco, and Fort Worth career networking groups.




    Being unemployed since 10Feb.  I drew great strength from God my Savior, especially this scripture verse from Matthew 6:25-27:  "“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink,or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?"




    Special thanks to you and the entire Frisco Connect Career Search leadership team for all of your guidance and encouragement.  You all are a model of servant leadership -- I aspire to emulate your unselfishness.

Amaury got exactly what he prayed for !!!!

Jane and Foster,First of all let me thank you for your encouragement and the blessing you have both been to me.  It seems like every time I say either one of you, you had a way to lift me up with your words and actions.




Yes, I have landed a job.  As you may know, I have been pursuing Lockheed Martin in Fort Worth.  So, I took my wife yesterday to Oklahoma City where Lockheed had a Same Day Hiring Event.  Had three interviews with different hiring managers.  The last interview, which I was able to finagle using one of my LM connections, turned into an OFFER!!!!




I accepted the offer last night upon my return from OK City.  My new title is Senior Information Assurance Engineer (aka Senior Cyber Security Engineer) at the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics plant in Fort Worth.  All I can say is that God was encouraging me for the last year by blessing me with people such as you and also by providing for my family financially.  So, I got the offer yesterday (5/31/2017) and I lost my job on 5/31/2016.  EXACTLY ONE YEAR….




God is good and he answered my long time prayers and placed me in my #1 company and my #1 job. To Him be the Glory!




Thanks again for being a blessing and hope that our paths will continue to cross in the future.  I still don’t have a start date as I’m going through the background checks and have to also do drug screening. 




Thanks again and have a blessed weekend!

Lisa will commute to Houston

I wanted to send my deepest gratitude for all your wonderful support and help during my transition in finding a new role.  You have been a tremendous inspiration to me as I have watched you constantly help others in lifting them up, networking them with so many different people, and just smiling and making the day better.



I have good news to share with you in that I have accepted a job as a CHRO for a small public company in Houston.  I will be commuting and coming back to Dallas on the weekends.  Thank you once again for all your introductions and I would still like to connect with these individuals and hope to come back to Dallas when the right opportunity opens up.  Please continue to keep me in your prayers and think of me if you hear of anything.



I will continue to send you openings for your HR group in hopes of giving back and helping others find new roles.  Let me know how I can be of help.  Thank you once again and I am so happy that God has brought you into my life.



Have a great day!!!!

John landed a Program Manager position at Masergy

Hello Foster,

Exciting news!!!!!!

I have been a regular attendee at Frisco Connect for the past 4 months.  A week ago Tuesday right after Frisco Connect,  I got a call from a recruiter at Randstad Technologies for an interview the following day.    I did the interview on Wednesday at Masergy Communications in Plano for a Program Manager position and I though it went well.  This past Monday I received a call telling me they wanted me.  So pending the background check and other paperwork,  I start Monday May 1.    It is a 6 month contract to hire.   

Praise the Lord!!!



Since I will not be at FC this next Tuesday,  feel free to announce the landing, and my wife plans to drop in and bring goodies. 





Thank you for all your encouragement and advice.  By the way,  the New Your Life team, (Ashley Samuel )  made the connection for me to the Randstad recruiter,  so networking is really the key. 





Sincerely,



John Vystrcil
