Landing Stories

Arnaud will stay in the USA

I finally landed! Unfortunately I won't be able to come next Thursday morning to share some donuts with all of you but I wanted to make a post to thank you so much for your help and support.

This group just changed my way to look for a job, from practical tips to mental state! I'm not from Dallas, not even from the US, but you all made me feel welcomed in your community, so thank you so much!

I will start on Monday at Safran in Grand Prairie as a Buyer, a job that i found on Indeed. If you're interested in the company or need a contact please let me know me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. All the best to all of you and thank you again so much.

Marlene has landed at Safran USA

I am pleased to inform you that I have landed at Safran USA in Irving.  In my new role, I will be coordinating benefit plans for their 7,000 employees and family members in the U.S.  I obtained my new role through online job website search.

I want to thank all the leaders, volunteers, and members of Southlake Focus Group for the tremendous support you have provided me for the six months that I have been in career transition.  The extent to which people at SFG as well as in my broader network have reached out to help and encourage me has been overwhelming! I also want to thank Foster Williams and Glenn Harbin for all the time and programs provided in the weekly HR Focus Group.  I thank all of you, as well as my family and friends, for this fantastic support.  I also thank God for His constant encouragement and provision!

I wish all of you the best and encourage you to stay patient and stay positive!  Please let me know if I can ever help you in any way.

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!
