How I Got A Job Offer - one member's story

One of our members, Tom Litterer, has gotten a job offer!  Congratulations Tom!  His start date is October 10th.

The process he went thru was re-evaluating his requirements with his Career Counselor, and then doing a lot of networking in person with many different people.  And also did steps to scan and tweak his resume.

Here is a link to a PDF describing what he did:  TomL-Job-Search-steps-2016.pdf
Enjoy.

Those on the Eliminati List can ask him questions.
