There Is A God! I Got A Job!!


Maybe the title of this post is a little dramatic, but who cares! I have been unemployed for several years now and for the most part did not have any issue with it. But for the past 6 months I have been trying very hard to get a job. Very Hard! In the past 6 months I have printed out over 100 resumes, gone on countless interviews and was told the same thing at almost every single one: they would get back to me. Now do not think that it is that I am not qualified because for a lot of the places I went to I was over qualified. Let me explain.

I am from San Francisco. I moved to New York 12 years ago with the dreams of becoming a photographer. For years I tried to break through the scene but to no avail. It seems that just about anyone with an iPhone is a photographer now a days. Anyway, when I worked on the west coast all I ever did was wait tables. And I was damn good at it too. At all of the restaurants I worked at I always ended up as a trainer in a very small amount of time.

When I decided to ease my way back into the work world after being away for years, I had no idea it was going to be so difficult. You see in New York no one will hire you unless you have New York experience but no one will hire you so that you can get the famed New York experience.

Well my luck changed today!! I went into Chevy’s in Times Square (an extremely high volume restaurant) and knocked the socks off of the hiring manager. He spoke to me for about 15 minutes and said “Well I hope you want to work with us because we want to work with you”. I almost fell off my bar stool! He then went and got a new hire packed and the process had begun!!

I am so excited that I feel as if I could explode!


Better not though, I don’t know how I would be able to wait on tables in a million pieces!!
