  • Employment

    How did you end up at your current job? Did you take the first one offered to you? Did a head hunter find you? Did an acquaintance hook you up? If you are unemployed, did you at least have your wife ask for your job back?

    I was recruited out of college, but certainly took a shotgun approach in applying to companies. My fall back was to be part of a start-up firm with four full time employees, but I ended up accepting an offer from a Fortune 200 company.

    Re: Employment

    I worked at an ad agency in Tulsa for a year or so and made some really great connections. One year after I left my mentor from that agency and I started our own agency. Been running for a year now.

    I have also gotten every job I've applied for though. I'm just that good. And McDonald's is that desperate!

      Re: Employment

      I got a call from a guy who had my resume for another job I interviewed at sent to him. He then called me up and offered me a job after a cursory interview. Kind of makes me laugh, he didn't even interview anyone else. What a sucker

      The prior job was set up by a friend who worked there and got me hired based on his recommendation.

                    Re: Employment

                    I've gotten every job I've ever applied for. +1 through my dad I didn't even have to apply for.

                    However seeing as though I'm still in school none have been real jobs, all just part time or internships.

                        Re: Employment

                        I found my current job through Twitter (job is in interactive marketing). My boss and I started @ replying to each other back and forth and I emailed him my resume. I had a few other job options through people I also networked with via Twitter. The job offer was the first to come along and I took it without negotiations because I quit my job and moved without a job, so I was desperate. I wish I had held out for a little more money because I took a cut with this job. But oh well.
