Some of you may know I'm moving to Melbourne in about 5 weeks. I have a job lined up in a vintage store "Frocks and Slacks," which I was offered off the street last time I was there. The owners have just opened a second store, called "Fancypants."
I was doing some google-ing and found this interview with my boss about his newly opened store...
So how did I get the job?
Garth and I were walking past, we were in Melbourne for a job interview for him (in a hot rod shop). He got the job, but I had no work lined up. We were trying to decide if we should make the big move, when suddenly, I walked past this vintage store.
I didn't go in, because we were having this big, serious conversation, but the owner (Tracey) came out and yelled: "You can't look like that and not come in here!"
So I did. After chatting for the grand total of five minutes, she offered me a job. Didn't want my resume, didn't care if I'd done retail work before (I had). Just flat out offered me a job!
That was nearly 4 months ago. And she's keeping the job for me. What a doll.
Maybe some things are just meant to be?
