She stopped me mid-sentence and said:
“Ok look. I’m really not supposed to do this, but I don’t want you to leave the building. Wait right here for a second and I’m going to see if I can get this expedited. Wait one minute.”
I sat there for a few minutes wondering, “what the hell?”
She finally came back and said:
“Ok, come with me.”
We walked back to the HR department and she sat me down next to a desk and said:
“This is [Sally]. She’s going to process everything for you. We’re going to hire you right now. We don’t normally do this, but I don’t want you to leave and go somewhere else. She’ll give you all the details and if you accept the offer, you can start Monday.”
I about fell outta my chair.
At the time, I was desperate.
I was about 3 days back from Iraq. I had no money because my soon-to be ex-wife had taken all my savings. I had no car. I had no place to live… and, I was just a few days from being out on the street.
Her words were a god-send.
Fast-forward 11 years…
And, here I am writing a blog post that’ll bee seen by thousands of developers; having worked in IT those past 11 years; been full-time at home the last six years; and making my living doing what I love.
That’s how much a good interview can change your life.
In today’s episode of the John Morris Show, I’ll tell you what I said in that interview to get her so excited and hire me on the spot. And, how you can craft your own narrative to get the same reaction.
Once you learn this, it’s a power you can wield in any situation.
And take control of your own destiny…
And prove all the doubters in your life wrong…
