A heartfelt thank you to those that write their stories here. Every morning I read a new story that gives me hope. Rhonda, you have given us the greatest gift in life, and from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
I was unhappy about my job and my boss and I felt miserable every day. I applied for jobs and went for many interviews but no one got back to me.
One day I just gave up and said that a job will come to me. Then I received a call for an interview! I never thought much of it except that if it was meant for me, it will come to me. When I went for the interview which was quite far from my home, I was told that the Company was moving its offices closer to my home!
My interview was truly amazing. I was not nervous as I spoke to the HR Managers. I felt as though I was talking to my friends. I felt so calm and relaxed. There was this sudden boost in my confidence and the way I handled the questions. It seemed like I said exactly what the managers wanted to hear. I walked out of that interview excited and I knew that this job was mine.
Two weeks after my interview I had not heard anything from the company. I opened up the email they sent me a month back to confirm my interview date. The lady that sent me the confirmation was also the HR Manager who interviewed me. Her surname was Bierman. I opened up the confirmation email and began to type her an email asking for feedback on the interview. Then I thought to myself “What if I come across as being too pushy?” So I chose not to send the email. I asked God and the Universe for a sign as to what I should do.
That same day as I drove home from work, I heard on the radio that Bierman Avenue was gridlocked with traffic and that motorists should stay away from Bierman Avenue or use an alternate route. I was relieved! There was my sign! They were busy and that is why they had not contacted me yet.
A month later I received a call for the second interview with the Regional HR Manager. Again I felt so confident and spoke to this manager as if she was a campus friend. I can’t explain what came over me, as I am always nervous and keep to myself in interviews. Everything I said seemed to match what this company was looking for. She was very impressed.
Today I got my Offer Letter from the HR Manager and it was just as I had imagined it to be! I imagined receiving a call from the HR lady saying they would like to offer me the job. I even drew up an offer letter and signed as the HR Manager and emailed it to myself. I even got the company logo and placed it on my Offer Letter. Today I got a call from the lady I imagined and she said she is sending through my Offer Letter for me to sign and accept. It felt so perfect.
I opened my gratitude journal and found that one of the things I was grateful for was “my reduced travel costs”. And now my wish has been granted. I will be traveling only 4 km to work every day. I am truly grateful for everything in my life. I feel so blessed.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much!
