Take it to the Bank

takeittothebankA little over a year ago now a good family friend made a suggestion about working for Wachovia, made a phone call and got me a telephone interview. I won the interview and got a follow-up interview for a panel interview. I got the job offer by the end of the day. Which got me thinking. Maybe I should keep looking. I did and got two subsequent offers elsewhere. In short, I took the Wachovia position, resigned from my old company, and moved home.
Since then I have been fortunate to make good friends at Wachovia and I have learned a lot about business relationships. Much more than I was getting at my old company.
Meanwhile, my old company is at the heart of “credit crunch” and a highly impacted industry is taking blows from all sides. They aren’t doing so well and I don’t feel the least bit guilty for them because I haven’t wished anything bad on them.
Likewise, my experience working at Wachovia so far has been a fantastic experience. It has been a place where I can showcase my people skills which is where my true talents are. What a difference a year can make. And you can take that to the bank. I did.
