I hope you are doing well.  I just wanted to let you know that I have found a job!  I am a Benefits Analyst with Marsh & McLennan.  I had been talking with Marsh & McLennan since the first of the year, and it finally happened. :) 

I was offered a job late November and I am 2 weeks in and enjoying it.

Thank you so much for your kindness, and God bless the Southlake Group.  If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

Kidist is now at Microsoft

Hello Everyone, 

Hope all is well.  I wanted to let you know that I have landed at Microsoft  as an Account Executive starting on November 13th.  The job is going to be very similar to what I was doing at IBM and they found me through LinkedIn. I have been out of a job for 3 months. The package they offered was one I could not refuse so I am blessed. 

I wanted to Thank You all for helping me during this transition period, especially at the beginning. I had no idea where to start since I had never really looked for a job before nor had I ever interviewed.  I was recruited by from college and been at IBM  for exactly 30 years to the day so Southlake Focus group really helped  me organize my thoughts and the job search process. 

I appreciate everything that you have provided to us and I will continue to promote all the different Networking Groups (SFG, Fortworth Networking group and the Frisco one) going forward and please don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do to help. 

Please Thank the rest of the  Southlake Focus group leadership for me.

Sufyan Adi is now at Gamestop

Hi Mike / Foster/ Les,

I wanted let you know that I have landed a Sr. Problem Manager at GameStop,  I will start on 10/30.  There was a series of phone and face to face interviews, for the most part they were basic interviews except 2 were quite technical. 

I am traveling for a  personal matter and will not be able to make it this coming week.

Would you please pass along to the team at Southlake Focus Group, Les’ PMP prep team and CSN_IT group that the preparation provided were very valuable and would not have been the same outcome without the encouragement and support you all gave me.  I am forever grateful to many people that I can’t possibly mention all of them.  I am truly blessed that I got to meet all of them. 

A final and most important thank you goes to the lord for lifting me up during the past 3 months of difficult and challenging time.

Again thank you and God bless.

Sufyan Adi, AKA Sam
