Good things take time, patience, persistence, and a heap of positive attitude! Here is a note from Bill Temple, Tom’s SC&C Campaign Director. “It is my pleasure to announce that Tom has accepted a position as VP Supply Chain.
Tom had not had to look for a job in nearly 20 years. He became very demoralized going through the job search process, but was not one to collapse under that weight. Instead he took positive actions and started his own consulting business in the 3rd quarter of 2010. He was doing supply chain consulting and had developed a small cadre of contractors to support his efforts and effectively utilized SC&C’s extensive database, while he was a client, to prospect for his consulting business. Using the techniques we worked on together, his business did very well.
In early March of 2011, Tom completed a supply chain diagnostic for a client. They asked him back for a longer term engagement working 4 days a week on site. It was a scramble to manage this schedule yet keep his other consulting going and making “sales calls” to keep his pipeline full.
Several weeks ago the company approached Tom and offered him a permanent in-house position, which he just accepted. One of Tom’s contractors will be picking up his consulting contracts so that none of his clients is left without support. Please join me in congratulating Tom on his new position, and the great example he sets for all those fighting the job market in the current economy.
