Hi guys! I just want to thank you so much for the Career Tools podcast. I recently had to re-enter the workforce after being a stay-at-home mother of 7 children for 16 years. At first I struggled with my resume and interviewing. I landed a temporary job which allowed me to listen to the podcast while working (I was packing and unpacking boxes). Even though the job was boring, I threw myself into doing it with excellence. I listened to every Career Tools podcast on resumes and interviewing. When I interviewed for my dream job, I wowed them. Although they didn't hire me for the position I interviewed for, they offered me another position and outbid another job offer I received on the same day. I took that job because it was with the company I wanted to work for and I knew I would work well with my new boss. Then I applied your principles on taking notes, remembering names, socializing, and keeping up with company information (which is hard for me since I am in introvert). It is six weeks after I've started and once the paperwork is final, I will be promoted to the job I originally wanted.
