Landing Stories

Loren found an unexpected contract

I am happy to announce I landed a contract job through a recruiter while
applying for a different position that was sent out from the SFG Yahoo
group. This is a 6-month contract with a possible extension with Evergreen
Power Solutions in Dallas, TX. The position is for webpage
development/programming.

My search concludes 4 months of unemployment. I have met so many wonderful
people at SFG and have new friends that will last in the process. I was a
volunteer at SFG because you network and learn so much more engaging than
just being a spectator. Get involved and get noticed!

Whitney is a pricing analyst again

I'm pleased to share that I have landed a new position as Senior Pricing Analyst at Safety-Kleen in Richardson, TX, and I started today, Monday, December 5. I found this role because LinkedIn suggested it to me, based on my profile and past work experience.

Although I only attended SFG a few times (due to travel and other unusual scheduling conflicts in November), I'm very grateful to the group, its leadership and volunteers, and White's Chapel for providing such a valuable resource.

I would welcome the opportunity to pay it forward. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance.


Wishing all of you the very best.

William kept in contact with a recruiter and it payed off

Finally,I have landed. After a 7 1/2 month search, I am re-entering the job force.  I found this job through a recruiter that I had talked to awhile back (more than a year ago) that I developed a connection with. 

Although she couldn't find the right fit for me at that time, she thought enough of me to call me about an Tax Analyst opportunity that she had available. It appears to be the perfect fit and I will start on 11/28. 

There is something to be said about keeping communication lines open.  This was an unexpected call out of the clear blue for a job that I never applied for.

Luckily, that past connection led to a future job.  Every contact and every person that you come in contact with is important. I would like to thank everyone connected with the SFG for their support and help during this trying & difficult time.



All My Best,



William Nicholson

Radha was found by a CEO on Linked-In

Hi Foster, Hope this mail finds you well. I landed Marketing Manager role at Traver Connect, a back office business development center for automotive service dealerships. Its a contract-to-hire role with a contract duration of 3 months. John Traver, the CEO, sent me in InMail on LinkedIn for a short discussion about my experience and qualifications.

There was no open position at that time. After 2 meetings with John & his management team, the role was created for me & I was hired. It was a great experience to discuss what I wanted to do in my job and create my role. I started working here since last week

Thank you very much for your guidance & support in my transition. All the motivation gained through Frisco Connect is very much appreciated.

Best, Radha Sagi
