Landing Stories

John landed a Program Manager position at Masergy

Hello Foster,

Exciting news!!!!!!

I have been a regular attendee at Frisco Connect for the past 4 months.  A week ago Tuesday right after Frisco Connect,  I got a call from a recruiter at Randstad Technologies for an interview the following day.    I did the interview on Wednesday at Masergy Communications in Plano for a Program Manager position and I though it went well.  This past Monday I received a call telling me they wanted me.  So pending the background check and other paperwork,  I start Monday May 1.    It is a 6 month contract to hire.   

Praise the Lord!!!



Since I will not be at FC this next Tuesday,  feel free to announce the landing, and my wife plans to drop in and bring goodies. 





Thank you for all your encouragement and advice.  By the way,  the New Your Life team, (Ashley Samuel )  made the connection for me to the Randstad recruiter,  so networking is really the key. 





Sincerely,



John Vystrcil

Phil has also landed a cost accountant opportunity

I have landed a contract to perm position as a senior cost accountant with
Legacy Measurement Solutions in Addison, TX. I start tomorrow, Wedensday,
March 29th, so I won't be able to attend this Thursday' s meeting.

SFG played a vital role in helping me network with Barak Krengel. Barak is
a recruiter with Thomas, Edwards Group who attended the SFG last week and
announced he had some accounting positions. I talked to him after our 8:00
meeting and the process took off from there ending with an offer days later
through one of his associate recruiters.

I attended SFG for four weeks and want to tell "ya' ll" your ministry is a
true blessing to people in transition. The advice from each of the group
leaders was very valuable and Doug Anderson' s strength finders session and
branding meeting helped me present myself well.

Keep your faith strong in God, practice H.O.P.E. and keep an optimistic
attitude!

Best Regards,

Phil Pflaum
