    Connect with Glenn WhiteETP folks - I have landed (albeit in a currently contract role, though there is an opportunity for it to turn into a full time role).  It is in the same career, management consulting (I appreciated the previous discussion). I had been targeting a career change, trying to move over to the corporate side of the fence.  But working with a contract resourcing house, I was put in touch with ATKearney, and will be joining their team on a project in Saudi Arabia - improving the Supply Chain processes and technlolgy to facilitate the growth plans of a large chemicals company. If others want to try this, or do know the consulting field, check out Ondemand Resources http://www.ondemandresources.com. They place folks in companies looking for part time support and in consulting firms. So to those still searching, hang-in, keep doing it the ETP way, and good things will come your way!

    Good morning, - I just wanted to let you know I've landed.  I accepted a position at Magnetic Attractions, a division of Adams Magnetic Products Inc. as a National Account Manager.  My role will be to sell promotional magnetic solutions to Consumer Goods Companies and US Trade Channels as a means to help them drive incremental store / category / brand awareness, while at the same time, create incremental cost-efficiencies.  As part of my efforts, I'll also be presenting our capabilities to marketing / advertising agencies, as they service multiple consumer goods clients.  In addition to my selling responsibilities, I have accountability for effectively partnering with the Inside Sales and Customer Service teams to ensure maximum customer execution.  I appreciate all the help, preparation and support the ETP Network has provided during my transition.  As we've discussed, I look forward to continuing my relationship with ETP Network.   As you say, once landed, the Networking has just begun.

    Thank you again for all your support.

    Best Regards,

    James Lane

    I landed a position last week with the Compuware Corporation; I'll be working as a Sales Engineer for Vantage software. If not for the help I received through ETP, I would still be searching and/or have settled
    for something less. My transition experience proved the significant value of not only developing, but tapping into your personal network of people.

    The first few weeks of the job search I used traditional methodology, which got me nowhere. The results started to flow only when I began reaching out to people directly. Fortunately, these actions led me to
    an ETP Angel, who introduced me to this great organization and guided me into my new job. I’m very grateful and excited to be a part of this group and look forward to reciprocating the deed.

    Many thanks --

    John Morton

    Team - After over 28 years with the same company, my job was moved offshore over the summer. Since then, I have learned a whole lot about the job searching process, about networking, and about myself. I have polished up my interviewing skills. I have developed greater empathy for those who find themselves out of work with bills to pay. I have deepened and renewed friendships, and have a greater appreciation for the value of keeping relationships well nurtured. I hate to say it, but I will probably begin to think of the last six months as a necessary and important lesson in my life experience. I have grown.  I am especially grateful for the help, support, and guidance I've received from Rod, and from the members of the ETP team. I can't over-emphasize the importance of networking. I realize that my responsibility to my contacts does not end because I have landed. I will continue to be actively involved, supporting, and sharing opportunities that I become aware of with you.  I am very excited about my new position -- nervous, anxious, but excited!  Thanks again to all, and, as Rod says, "Keep Networking Alive!"

    I have accepted a Sr. Project Manager consulting assignment at AT&T in Middletown, NJ.   I will be working for Kelly Mitchell, a technology consulting company, headquartered out of St. Louis, MO .   I took some time off, since leaving my year-long consulting assignment at JPMorganChase in June, and am really excited about going to the new at&t (which I understand has changed quite a bit, since I left 3 years ago).  As an added bonus, the job is fairly close to my home – which adds icing to the cake.  I have benefited a great deal from the wealth of information that the ETP Network provides, and know that I will continue to benefit going forward.   If you know any experienced Project Managers that have an interest in working at AT&T, I recommend that they contact Kelly Mitchell, indicating that I recommended that they contact them.

    Thanks,

    Batsheva Salberg

    Thank you every one for your support.  I have landed a job of my choice.  I am following Rod's advice on 'After Landing the Job'.  This is not a good bye. I will continue to be an active member.
     
    Happy Holidays

    I wholeheartedly agree Rod, I have just landed a job, and if it were not for all this group's support and advice I would still be waiting for a call. In October I started getting agressive about working on my corporate mission statement of getting myself placed in the best position available for "ME" and at the same time ensuring I didn't take the road too tentitively. I worked dilligently networking and researching the companies and people I was interviewing with , and using all the tips you have all provided.  When the effort was pushed out in a positive "I am going to land a position" attitude, I was greeted with more and more interviews, opportunities and and choices. I was in a dry spell all summer because I really didn't put in the proper effort, it was very much a part time hobby second to my doing laundry and cooking and cleaning around the house. The efforts paid off quite well and I am not only Happy were I landed, but I am still getting opportunities outside of this job. When it turns good, the universe does indeed attract positive feedback.

    Thanks to all,
    Keep Networking Alive,

    Joe Vinci
