We love a good shout out, and this tweet definitely caught our attention:
“I seriously got hired at TARGET in 2 days.”
We got in touch and asked Daniel to share his story (after we said CONGRATULATIONS! of course). Here’s what he told us:
I think my search was successful due to my determination and eagerness to find a job. Keep calm during the storm and to never lose faith. I got hired in two days so you can say that I’m lucky, but without a doubt anything is possible. Never give up.
After high school, I joined community college – that same semester my father passed away and life for me went down the drain, I lost control of my desire and self determination and everything I wished for didn’t mean much. College was out of the picture and staying at home without a job and school seemed perfectly normal.
This state of mind remained for over a year, ’till I decided that enough was enough. I heard about Snagajob through some friends. I was somewhat skeptical, but out of desire for a better tomorrow I still decided to give it a try. I signed up on a Wednesday; applied to some jobs that same day, I got called for an interview on Thursday, and I got hired at Target that same week on Friday. It only took 2 days, so why not give it a try instead of wasting years and letting life pass you by?
Thank you Snagajob for helping me get hired and getting me back up on my two feet, if I become the person I want to be in the future… I will never forget who helped me open doors.”
Thank you, Daniel, for sharing your touching story!
What helped Daniel get hired?
His awesome attitude.
Daniel had a lot working against him, but he decided to be positive. I wasn’t at the interviews, but I’d bet his determination impressed the hiring manager. You can see it when someone is confident and motivated: they stand straighter, make eye contact more often and react with genuine enthusiasm. Even if you’re facing a much longer job search than Daniel (and most people are – I know I did!) try to have a positive attitude. looking for work can be hard on your state of mind, but you, your friends and family, and potential employers will all notice a difference when you choose to make the best of a tough situation.
