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.

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!
