As you know I have been out of work for the past 2 and a half years…
The two places I would have always thought I would love to work at is U of M Hospital or Chrysler. Obviously, Chrysler because that is the engineering customer that I have been working with for the past 8 years, and who wouldn’t want to work for the hospital since it is the best of any other by far
Today, I had an interview with both organizations. The interview at U of M went very well when I met with the administrator, and I believe I will be called back for the 2nd interview next Wednesday.
Last night, I tried looking for an email address or telephone number to contact my past customer who taught me all my technical skills to ask her to be a reference for me since she works at Chrysler. I never did find the number, but when I showed up for the interview she met me at one of the offices where the meeting was to take place. She gave me a hug and I told her I was going to ask her to be a reference. She said she saw my resume and she already spoke on my behalf. She said she herself was a hiring manager and is hiring for a few positions in Chrysler. She was going to stay in the meeting and participate.
As they were talking to me the manager mentioned there were four areas of work they needed to fill and what did I WANT. We talked a little more and I told them I was a little overwhelmed by the wonderful response, all the positions sounded great, and I was going to leave and have a wonderful ride home. PRAISE THE LORD. I was in my car a few minutes and the contract person called to say he went to the meeting room to quickly ask them how it all went and they were in the room talking, and giggling. They said I could fill any one of the positions wonderfully, and they were trying to duke it out where I would go since they all three wanted me. My friend told her boss “I TOLD YOU SO.” So I have been told….I am verbally hired.
I could not believe that I was at Chrysler again and that so many people came up hugging me and saying such nice things….God is GREAT! And I was and have been feeling physically GREAT!!! How many people would have an interview at their favorite places on the same day and have wonderful experiences as well….and get hired on the spot with WHAT DO YOU LIKE AND WHAT DO YOU WANT!!!!
I have another interview at a different company tomorrow that is scheduled so I will attend it. But what I really want is the job at U of M hospital. It might be less money…much less money, I don’t know…but who wouldnt want to work there and it’s close to home — direct hire with benefits. We’ll see about the 2nd interview. I’ll let the Lord work it all out.
I thought you would appreciate another answer to prayer….the Lord does have a sense of humor
The contract manager that called me with the great news said he thought the interview would go well….but he had NO IDEA HOW WELL IT WOULD GO!!! I told him, I did, since I have been going to serious Bible study the past 6 months….he said he was currently on the way to one and he totally agreed with me. How wonderful.
All my love to you and your wonderful family,
