husband has had little luck getting a job in the last 2 years. He has let a lot of his friends know, but so far, nothing. There is a local chain of restaurants that started back when husband was in college. It was just a bar back then, next to the place I worked at all through high school. husband was one of the early regulars, and the owner and his buddies (who still work with or for him in one way or another) were all friends of husband's. husband was joking with one of them about needing a job. Wed evening husband was working at a college basketball game (he works at most of the sporting events) the guy he was joking with asked if he was serious about the job. Then asked what he could do - and not only remembers how great husband was way back when, but also how great he still is with people. This man is not the owner of the chain, but has his own graphic arts business that started because this guy created the logo for the business and now they have an entire clothing line based on this man's art. So he is going to talk with the other guys and see where they can fit husband into the fold. This is awesome. These people hire for life, not for now or until you earn too much $ and can be replaced with min wage workers. They are amazing to their employees as long as the employees are good to them. They are totally family friendly and it would be an awesome opportunity for husband. Realistically a job working with this company is our state's equivalent to a job with Disney. If you could please keep us in your thoughts so that husband could get a job with them, it would be so appreciated. husband feels so frustrated that he can't get full time work and this is the kind of job he didn't even bother to dream about because jobs with these people and their companies are so desirable that it is super hard to even get an interview. Thanks. maybe it really is who you know. It sure isn't how well you can do the job or how much you want it or how great you would be for the company. Not here at least.
