After most than 30 years of working various roles in the manufacturing industry, George Bowman decided he wanted to focus his career path solely towards marketing and sales. George had previously been a member of CareerPlace in 2013 and he decided to use its services again to beef up his job search skills and get connected to a new job fast!

“CareerPlace offered me three main things: the coursework, the coaching and a place to gather,” said George. The workshop “So You Want to be a Consultant” was extremely useful to George during his time with CareerPlace. Working with his Career Coach, Bob Zanchelli was also a huge advantage to George while he was in the process of a career transition. “Bob was very focused, he helped me identify priorities, and instilled a sense of urgency into the process. Thank you for your volunteer efforts, they’re greatly appreciated,” George said.

After much hard work and help from various workshops and coaching sessions, George was offered a full-time position as an Account Manager in the Sales Department at Tent Maker Industry Supply! Upon reflecting on his job search experience, George had this advice to share with fellow job seekers, “Stay focused, have a daily to-do list, attend job fairs, and keep the faith.”

Congratulations, George!
