Short story first of all.
Was unemployed for 3.2 years was laid off from a maintenance mechanic job that was paying pretty good money.
Anyway after not finding any good job out there I went to college two years ago for a Computer Science and Networking major. At the same time I was trying to get my foot in the door for a computer job as well. No one wanted me because of no on the job training just personal experience.
Well a month ago my neighbor calls me wh I am good friends with both of them. Great friends you could even say, they have seen me grow up and call me their son in some ways. She tells me the health care company she works for is looking for a IS guy as a temp. She tells me to apply and she will put in a good word for me. I will note at this time that she is the Vice President of human resources. So after applying for the job and waiting two weeks I get a call offering me the job.I accept and start work. Two weeks later the love my personality and my work ethic and how I am dedicated and how I love my work. 4 days ago they offer me the job as a permeant which some people siad it was going to happen but I was not going to hold my breathe.
So now here I am with my dream job 4 weeks later and can not wait to walk into work everyday.
I am trying to figure out something to do to thank my neighbor as I can not even think of anything big enough. It is hard enough to get your foot in the door but here I am with my dream job making good money going to be made permeant Monday. Suggestions?
