A friend called me from Virginia today. She's having a hard time finding a job. Might have to look nationwide. High salaries in California, but high living expenses. Doesn't want to sell her house and down-size, or move out of state.
She had a nibble job-wise about a month ago and then didn't hear again from the prospective employer. She was ready to write it off and assumed they had hired someone else.
I suggested she re-contact them and express more interest. I urged her not to assume someone else had been hired.
What happened after our conversation? She turned on her computer and checked her email. There was an email from that employer asking if she were still available!!! On Monday she'll sign the employment agreement and start!
Pretty powerful; eh? And by the end of the day she had a second employment contact!
