Professional Placement Network- Joseph Sotomayor’s success

I just wanted to thank you for all the support I have received from CareerSource Pasco Hernando’s Spring Hill Office. I also wanted to tell you that through your efforts of finding the right personnel recruiters, I was offered a position at the Florida Pasco County, beginning March 27th.

From the first day, I stepped into the office to see what resources your office offered, I have been overwhelmed with all the care and attention the office gives to everyone seeking advice on how to rejoin the workforce again.

During the year that I spent joining the Professional Placement Network (PPN), I listened to all the participants and learned everything I needed to find the proper job. I am of much gratitude for all the advice given by you, Glenn and everyone in the office.

Participating in the PPN was very fulfilling, and I was encouraged by all the network participants, who offered how to regain employment with their tips, leads and their inspirations.

I appreciate all the efforts from your office, and your support on my job search and am grateful for the way you’ve stepped in as my personal “career counselor.”

 

Regards,

 

Joseph Sotomayor

Renee’s Success Story

“After my most recent temporary assignment ended the staffing agency I had gone through didn’t have another assignment for me. I had applied to a lot of different positions, but nothing was happening. In February, I attended one of Tracy Reid-Rowe’s Professional Placement Networking sessions. The guest speaker was Linda Simpson of Ad-Vance Talent Solutions, whose company had recently secured an agreement with Pasco County to fulfill their temporary staffing needs. I gave her my resume, and we discussed my skills and interests. Earlier this week, I got a call from Linda, asking if I was interested in a temporary receptionist position at the Parks and Recreation Department. I agreed to interview with them. Things went so well that Linda called me when I was on my way home from the interview and said they wanted me to start on Monday! Linda followed-up with the on-boarding paperwork very quickly so I can look forward to earning a paycheck immediately! I would never have heard of Ad-Vance nor met Linda if it had not been for Tracy and the Professional Placement Network meeting. I would encourage anyone to make use of this valuable networking resource!”
