Remember the letter-writer back in January who had to prepare a meal and entertain 20 people, along with 19 other people competing for a job? Of course you do — it might be our craziest, most notorious letter ever.
Here’s her update.
I’ve just landed a great job with a leading public health organization doing exactly what I want to be doing. I’ll be in the field doing real frontline public health work. It was the most casual interview process ever! I had met with the director several months ago and consistently followed up with him to see if he knew of any openings. Finally they had an opening and he remembered me. One quick phone interview and I got the job –no cooking or dancing like a performing monkey required.
Best of all, it seems like an organization that respects and appreciates their staff! Thanks for your advice. Following your website is one of the few things that kept me sane during the job search.
