Here is an excerpt from the message I recently received from Norman about his new position:
“It will be a hard job that is going to stretch my skill set on both the knowledge and social levels. I will be a project manager facilitating meetings with various groups with conflicting personalities. From what I’ve heard, this is a great place to work and a good time to be working here. They treat their people well, understand the value of project management, and are expanding. Plus, energy is a great field with a huge potential for long term growth.
What I want to make sure you know, so you can share with your clients, is that I got this job through a personal connection in my network. Tell your clients that no matter how long they have been looking, to keep working their network. I went to lunch with some former coworkers twice around Christmas. If I hadn’t, this opportunity never would have occurred.”
Thank you so much for sharing with us, Norm, and congratulations once again!
I’d like to hear from all of you! If you’ve recently received a position and would like to share your insights with us, please just email me at JulieMendez@jsmcareercoaching.com.
