I got through the initial screening and into the interview process for a fortune 500 company!
^ me when I read that email.
I am allll kinds of excited. I am too blessed and highly favored cause a sista aint even graduated yet and I'm getting opportunities like this.
I google'd people's reviews of the company. Most of them were from people without degrees who work in manual labor positions and they were discussing their freakin 100k+ salaries. My dad works for their competitor and tells me that the position I am applying for has a starting salary of at least 70k. MAN LOOK!
I aint neva had more than $2,000 to my name. I might faint.
The first part of the process begins next week and isn't an interview but a 4 hour long pre-employment test. The job ad included what to study for the test. I'm about to be one studying sista.
Even if I don't get the job this is a major confidence boost. The fact that my resume was even selected and not completely screened out of the selection process lets me know I must be doing something right.
