I’ve had the privilege of engaging and interacting with the Houston International HR Roundtable over the past year. What it has afforded me is the realization of a very important career goal—true international exposure via a two year assignment in Paris, France!
I was approached about this opportunity through a contact at the roundtable. Because of the roundtable connection, I was interviewed and ultimately offered the role of Vice President of Human Resources at Technip-North America…a journey that will start in Paris.
I can’t stress the importance of networking with colleagues at the appropriate level. I feel the International HR Roundtable is the best organization in Houston that addresses international issues and mobilization for senior HR leaders.
We are all presented with prospects, and we have to take advantage of them as they arise. This is true in our personal lives and our professional lives. Participating in and supporting the right organizations are essential.
I would like to thank Larry and the roundtable for “getting me connected” with the right international career opportunity. Merci!
I wish the Larry and the roundtable continued success.
À la prochaine!
