My sister, Stephanie, today received good news of employment with a company that she really wants to work for. I am overjoyed for her and I know she will do very well.
Stephanie was in England for over a year studying International Business and Marketing and earned an M.A. for her efforts. After returning to the states in December of 2008, she had many difficulties finding a job. But she persevered, she kept working to find what she wanted, she was patient and things worked out for her. When she interviewed for this job, she was given, more or less, a job offer, but the HR department of this company said that there was a hiring freeze until Oct. 1. Needless to say, Stephanie was disheartened, but, today, the company, upon hearing that Stephanie was offered another job (not what she wanted, not even close, btw), decided to forget the freeze and hire her. She starts Oct. 5.
Good for her and I wish her well.
