I couldn’t stop myself from writing this update of my Jan 12th story. In that story, I had written about a bubbly girl, right out of college, who worked as temporary help in our office. Unfortunately, she ran into some challenges. Among other things, she was having a hard time getting through HR to interview for a permanent job.
We worked on her resume and application and finally got an invitation for her first job interview. I asked her to do some mock interviews with me and she did it. On the big day, I knew she did well, but someone else did better. She didn’t get the job. Just as I expected, she started losing her confidence all over again. I kept reassuring her.
But, a few days later, to her surprise and mine, the same hiring officer called and asked her to interview for a similar position in his section. To cut the story short, she interviewed and got the job. On Friday, Feb 28, I received her text which read verbatim “My dear Rupa, I got the job. Thank you sooooo much, Love you tons” accompanied by eleven blow kiss emoticons. What a joy!
