North Texas LEAD took my job search activities up a notch and helped me land a job at a company where I am able to contribute and continue building my career. The interview process was great preparation for what I eventually experienced as a candidate and the coaching helped position me for putting my best foot forward to land the job. I met the Director of Talent Acquisition for my company at a LEAD networking event and the rest as they say is history. I’ll celebrate my 3-year anniversary later this year and I’ve had the opportunity to work in three different businesses in our division and been promoted twice. I’m loving the people I work with and the company is a great fit for me.

Silk JonathanThe North Texas LEAD Team was instrumental in my transition from the U.S. Army. The team provided incredibly valuable feedback on my resume and interviewing skills which was like a kick in the gut. I recognized the learning opportunity LEAD provided and worked to communicate my leadership skills and strengths effectively. Because of their dedication, I demonstrated during a rigorous interview process how my leadership experience and educational background made me the best fit for the position I applied for at the University of North Texas Health Science Center. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with North Texas LEAD.
