I just wanted to let you know that there’s a reason why I haven’t come to any recent Career Connectors events. It’s because I found a job!
This past week, I started working as a data scientist for a technology startup in the financial services space that’s based in downtown Phoenix. It’s an ideal opportunity for me to break into the data science industry with an exciting company.
I wanted to thank you and your staff for putting together all of your fantastic networking events and bringing in informative speakers. I learned a lot of invaluable information about LinkedIn, resumes, and ATSs which undoubtedly helped me land my new position!
Thanks again for all your encouragement and prayers, and I wish you all the best for the rest of the year and 2019!
Thank you for all you do! I’ve been nine loooong months looking for a full-time position and Career Connectors was a real life-line. I was pretty discouraged by the time I found your organization on-line and first visited. The speaker provided some great information but most importantly, encouragement and hope. The panel discussion on resumes was incredibly helpful! Last month I had the opportunity to sit with Brenda and she suggested I really pare back all but the last 10 years of experience and a couple of other changes. The following week, after implementing the suggested changes I had an interview and now I am finally back to work!
Thank you for all your prayers this year. This really is a God thing….I certified for unemployment benefits on the same day the offer came in. After that payment, there was only $400 left toward my claim! I would have preferred to get back to work some time ago, but God had other plans! The team I’m working with now is great, and they are so delighted to have me join them and it’s a pleasure to go to work. Every one I meet who says they are looking for a new opportunity I tell to check out Career Connectors. You’re providing an invaluable service. Thank you!
Blessings to each of you who make Career Connectors happen!
I would like to share that I landed a contract position for 6 months with possible conversion to a permanent position on the team after those contract periods complete. I work on a team as an Instructional Designer and the team is virtual, which means I am able to work from home 100% of the time! I am very excited for the future of my career!
I wanted to share that I sadly won’t be seeing you at Career Connector events for the next 6 months at the very least, and we’ll see how my performance earns me a long term Career Connection!
Thank you always for being there for the community of people in career transition and all the resources you have been able to provide. I hope to keep you up to date as the months and work goes on.
Blessings to everyone you support and the work you do!
Thank you, Jessica.
Although I wasn’t able to meet you personally, I was able to see you working with another applicant and was impressed with your efforts and the excellent platform that your team presented.
Thank you very much.
I own a Leadership Company, and have enjoyed attending the Career Connector events. With gratitude I listen to the speakers you line up… they offer phenominal and practical information. What has struck me each time has been the audience. My heart hurts for them. They are in a desperate place in their lives. I have had the opportunity speak with a few of the people in attendance, and they have shared their stories… I walk away thankful to God for the opportunity to meet these people and they become people that I pray for, for God to lead guide and direct them to the job that He has for them. I want to thank you for your dedication to bring this connection to the valley… Through Career Connectors, Jessica, you are living out a Calling! I pray that God Bless your life in ways that you never dreamed possible… because Jesus tells us to care for the poor and needy… that is where His heart is… It is apparent that you share His heart as well.
I am profoundly grateful for all of the support Career Connectors has provided during my recent job search – from the exceptional speakers to the participating employers, LinkedIn experts (Ted Robison is amazing with his individualized approach), resume experts, photographers, and of course the great opportunity to network! I felt like I had an army of support with me every single day. I appreciate all the time and effort invested by many and am particularly grateful for Jessica! You have a first class organization and I thank you for providing such an uplifting and positive experience!
Career Connectors is dedicated to bring the job seeker to reputable employers in the valley. I appreciate their professionalism and their consistency to continue to provide great leads.
Networking helps, especially when you do not directly know anyone at a target company. I have attended 4 of your meetings and at one of them a company representative and recruiter presented. I was already familiar with this company, but she also said some other things in the presentation that made me take notice and created more interest on my part. I spoke with the recruiter at your event and she followed up the next week and from there I went on several phone interviews and on site interview to a job offer. Up to this point I was spending a lot of time looking at potential companies and applying but had little success getting through to the recruiters. Thanks Career Connectors!
I want to follow up with you about the position I had hoped to get. I got it! And thanks to Jack Milligan’s Salary Negotiation talk, for the first time I didn’t feel like an idiot when I accepted a job. No one else offers that kind of information. Thank you for all you do. I appreciate your efforts to bless others. May you and yours be blessed every day. Thank you for everything,
A good friend told me of her success using Career Connectors networking. She landed an interview and later, a job in her field, after attending one networking event. So, when it was my turn, I had to check it out.
I was starting to get the blues about being unemployed but the speaker lifted me out of the dumps and put my life back in perspective. So many people were there to help and offer
support! Just by networking that day, I was given a job lead that has led to two interviews and a not just a job offer, but a career! That’s two success stories in one testimonial!
Thank you Career Connectors! Without you I’d still be in that overeducated/overqualified niche, now I’m back in business!
