I had lunch in Chicago last week with a friend who's now a hiring manager–somebody I hadn't seen in too long, frankly.
She was catching me up on life, and her face lit up when she started talking about her team at work. All of the sudden, a manager of five. It honestly feels like yesterday that she was texting me with a heavy, stressy heart after a fruitless job search trip to New York the summer after graduation.
I could tell she's become a genuinely incredible mentor to this rapidly-expanding squad of employees.... and get this...
"We hired the most recent person just a few months ago. Interviewed her on a Thursday and she started that next Monday."
So don't lose hope, okay? Not this week.
The good ones are out there. They're waiting to find you.
