I have been out of college for about two months now. For a little while I was getting frustrated that I was not really able to find the sort of job that I was hoping to get, but I sort of lucked out when I ran into one of the girls that I used to go out with. I was looking at some Old Town Scottsdale apartments and she lived there. We got to talking and she told me that they had some job openings where she worked. Of course I knew that this was going to be awkward, because I knew that she was working for a company that her grandfather owned. It is apparent that they are grooming her to take over the big desk on the top floor when her uncle decides to retire, but I needed the job and it was obvious that she was going to let me have one.

In fact they were barely disguising the fact when I went there for the interview, but her uncle realized that she was recommending me for the job for a reason. She had told him how we met. I had been tutoring her in one of her computer science courses and it quickly became apparent that they were sort of desperate for a person with the skills that I have. She came into the interview and started to talk about the project that they needed to do. Their entire IT department was in real disarray and they had to modernize. In fact it was a real existential problem for them and I immediately told them that I was going to need help to do what they needed done. They realized this already and asked me if I had anyone in mind. Of course I know where to look.
