Remember how I told you guys I reconnected with my old boss and we made plans to meet up this weekend. We met up today and had a great time catching up. Well of course I mentioned to her my goal to get into HR…this is what she said ” I wish I could hire you but we don’t have the $ in our budget”. I was confused because she doesn’t work in HR. So she must of caught on to my confusion and she says to me “You know one of my roles is VP of HR at my job?” I almost fell out my seat, but I kept my composure and we kept talking…So guess what? She is going to take me on as an intern!!!!! She knows I work a full time job so she is willing to have me work in the evening and on the weekend, I also told her that I have 2 weeks of vacation left right now so I can take time off here and there to work during business hours. I am beyond excited I almost can’t believe it! I am going to be able to get hands on knowledge, work in a HR dept and add it to my resume! Eeeek
Thank you! Thank you bees for reminding me of the power of networking!!!
