One Tip Paves Way to New Job, Then New Venture

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSacProNet alum Chris Jackson recently shared an inspiring career experience that took him from working for a Fortune 500 company and then venturing out to launch a business.

It was 1996 when Chris moved from the Bay Area to Sacramento and didn’t know anyone in the capital city. Working off a tip from fellow SacProNet member, Chris landed a temporary position at Intel Corp., which eventually grew into a full-time job at the large computer chipmaker.

After 10 years in that Intel position, Chris caught the entrepreneurial bug and started his own firm, The Rowy Networks. His career journey shows networking works.

SacProNet has many speakers like Chris lined up over the next several weeks. Be sure to take advantage of these opportunities. Your next job lead could be just around the corner.
