Success Stories

“Having recently relocated from out of state back to the Dallas metro area, searching for a new role was a daunting prospect.  I had lived out of state for over 2 years and no longer felt ‘connected’ to the HR Community.  In addition to searching for a job, I also needed a resource for continuing education to maintain my PHR and SHRM – CP certifications.  Dallas HR was my first stop. Applying for posted positions was only part of my job search strategy.   I knew I needed to do more, as I was looking for a specific role in HR.  I reached out to Dallas HR, and inquired about a discounted membership, as I was in transition.  I was very excited to find the Job-Link community, and began attending the meetings.  At a time when I was alone most of the work week, and feeling out of touch, attending the meetings not only provided some valuable job search tools and insights, but gave me an opportunity to meet other HR professionals and share job leads and search help with others in transition.  Cannot recommend the group enough to those in transition." --  Susan Asuncion, member since 2015

“I found the Job-Link meetings very beneficial for the following reasons; It felt good to get out of the house and network with others in a similar situation...realizing you are not alone goes a long way to keeping the right attitude. I also enjoyed sharing opportunities with others as that kept me from staying focused only on myself. The tips and tricks I learned in the sessions helped keep my job search fresh for me. I specifically remember ordering business cards and customizing each resume as a result of what I learned in the sessions. I look forward to staying engaged with HRDallas via other roundtable groups.”  --  Kristina Kammerer, member since 2014

"In August of 2017 I found myself in transition after 7 years in the same position. During that time I tried to stay very active and one of those activities was increasing my level of involvement with DallasHR. One of the benefits to DallasHR, which I had previously been unaware of, was the Job-Link Group. While my current position had no direct connection to DallasHR I would say the biggest benefits to my involvement with DallasHR, for me, was the sense of purpose. Attending the monthly Job-Link meetings benefited me mentally during my transition. I was able to stay actively engaged with HR, despite not actually working, by talking to other HR professionals. The monthly meetings were useful but also, on a different level, were the conversations that happened during and after the presentations. I was able to make several connections with other HR professionals. People with whom I shared and reviewed resumes, discussed application and interview strategies, laughed about the frustrations of the job search process, and developing an over support net outside of my family and friends. These were people who genuinely cared about each other and checked on each other during our search and were willing to talk, support, or lift each other just by checking in on each other. That sense of community and support is why I recommend DallasHR to any HR professional that I come in contact who has never been involved with DallasHR"   --  Sean McWilliams, member since 2011
