Success Story:Focused Searching Leads to a New Job in Three Months

Another SacProNet member found work through his high level of focused searching, networking (both on-line and in person), flexibility and commitment. In just a few months, Robert J. not only found a job but actually achieved a promotion with his new position, as Technical Trainer for Bosch Security Systems. He shared this regarding his SacProNet participation: “The most helpful activity I did at SacProNet was the mock panel interview, because that was my biggest fear, facing a panel. And when I did the mock interview, it didn't feel so bad.

Success Story:A high tech match for Catherine B & HP

After eight months, Catherine B. found employment with Hewlett-Packard.  This August she starts her new role as a business analyst. Catherine confirmed the weekly SacProNet meetings were her motivation, but participating on the Interview Committee was her most valuable SacProNet experience. She benefited from participating in mock interviews.  While she never had the opportunity to participate as the interviewee, she interacted as part of the interviewing panel on numerous occasions.
