So several of my friends and even a business or two that I follow on Facebook have been posting Throwback Thursday photos, which are cute, sentimental reminiscences of times gone by. It got me thinking that I have some great professional Throwback Thursday moments in my arsenal. So here it is, my very first Throwback Thursday post. I came across this newspaper clipping in a box of mementos my dad returned to me last year; I had completely forgotten about the thing .
I was 19 at the time, working as a Student Employment Officer for Human Resources Development Canada, and had recently discovered a love for running. In hindsight I think this was an indication of my interest in marketing and promotions. The idea was for employers to call in with jobs for students and for each job I would run a 1/2 kilometer.
Thinking back I think the best part was that the last line of the article mentioned I was going to be looking for a new job shortly, and I got one because of the article. I had a call from a local gym owner the next week telling me she had seen the article and wanted to hire me. Now that is the way to get a job, have them call you!
