Happy New Year. I wanted to share the goods news that I landed a role at Amazon in Seattle and moving at the end of the month.

It was a pleasure meeting you and the group and I have shared that information with others who are in the process.

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.


Whitney Darwin
