    Hello Mr. Colon,

    Happy Belated Thanksgiving! I am doing really well. Although some time has gone by since our last conversation, I have kept up with your emails. Particularly the ones about time management and persistence have been factors in my recent success. I was recently notified that I was hired for the Resident Assistant (RA) at my college!!This job, along with three other jobs I've landed this semester, all took place after attending your career session at Brooklyn Tabernacle in the summer focused on Networking and the Career Search Steps. Thank you for your wealth of knowledge and dedication to helping people like me.

    I truly appreciate it.

    I was let go by Liberty Mutual at the beginning of the year, and applied everything I learned through ETP and landed a new role, in a difficult market, inside eight weeks.

    I am still on all of your emails, and enjoy watching ETP flourish.

    Hello Carl,

    I just wanted to let you know that have been working since November 21, 2011.  I got it through help changing my resume to a targeted resume.
       I will be working with Syven Global Services, which is a consulting firm for Lazard.   I will be working as a Lotus Notes Developer.

    Thanks for all your help.

    I will keep updating my network and will stay in touch.

    Always looking forward for better opportunities.

    I just wanted to share with you my landing a position at Columbia University in the Information Technology department.  The position is initially a temporary position and will transition into a permanent position.

    As I prepare for Thanksgiving I want to thank you and the ETP community for the support in learning and actively using all the tools that I learned.  It was my networking which lead to my being contacted about the position but I then implemented my value proposition as discussed at the meetings and your book, WIN THE RACE for 21st CENTURY JOBS with Chip Hartman.

    Dear fellow members:

    I was encouraged to write a few lines of inspiration for those of us who are still in the battle to find a job in this difficult job market.  I have been blessed to find a job after many months of searching.  Although it is a temporary position, I have decided to look and focus on the positive of it all.  I must confess that at times even my faith in the ETP method of job search was weakening, however, much prayer and persistence kept me at it and refuse to believe that I would not be able to find an opportunity.  As Rod, Carl and many others in ETP say, is all about relationships. So lets keep up the good work and let us keep networking for it is valuable for more than just finding a job.

    Email from Empowering Today's Professionals member sent to ETP Founder, Rod Colon and Chief Operations Officer, Carl E. Reid.


    I wanted to email you to give you the update that I have recently been offered a position as a Director of Admissions.  I was able to go through the first interview and second interview with apparently flying colors because I was offered the position the next morning. 

    I want to thank you two for taking the time and effort in assisting me with finding a new job..  Your expertise and  guidance is much appreciated.  However,  I also want you to know that I will not be satisfied and will continue being a member of the ETP Network and continue following what I have read in the book and what you two gentlemen have advised me. 

    I feel that with both of your guidance, I have built a strong foundation of Rob Inc. and I want to continue with what you gentlemen have provided me with.  Again, thank you for all you help and we will continue to keep the networking alive and if I can be of any assistance please let me know.  Talk to you both soon.
    Best Regards,

    Finally....I've landed! And not just in a temporary contract position either . . . I want to thank everyone, EVERYONE, for their support and encouragement. Kudos to Rod and Carl. And to the guys at the Breakfast Club. And to the Manhattan Networking Group, and....i could go on and on.

    I've learned so much.

    I will be working as Project Manager for a nonprofit located in midtown NYC.

    I want to express my appreciation to Rod and the entire ETP community for their support through my second search in two years, and for providing so many great ideas through Rod's book, trainings and other resources.

    These are the techniques that were especially valuable:
    • applying to at least one opportunity each day
    • customizing resumes as well as cover letters
    • leveraging contacts to recommend me to potential hiring managers

     The tips I've gained through my membership with ETP have been especially valuable.

    Hello Everybody,
    Yes, it's true!!  I've been working since June 6 as a consultant.  I can't say any one person, any one advocate, or any one piece of advice or training helped me land, but just creating the mind set of ME, Inc. is enough to persevere.  

    The only pearl of wisdom I can offer is, know what your strengths are and what you want to do with them, and never give up.  I'd be happy to talk with anyone who needs a gentle push (or maybe not so gentle).  Follow the seven steps, and stay positive!!!

    "Rod assisted me through the Empowering Today's Professionals while I was in between positions.  Through ongoing encouragement and support through webinars, in person meetings and telephone support through the ETP 'solution center,' I eventually landed a new position.

    Rod's group is well worth joining, and I hope to be able to return the favor by helping others in his network to find fulfilling work and to understand the ongoing importance of having an active professional network." - Norman ReissNonprofit Bridge
