....with the VP of our "Community Relations" dept. This is the area of human resources where the focus is on charity, education programs, mentoring, and a whole host of other community programs. It's an area of our company that I learned about recently and am extremely eager to get my foot into.
A friend hooked me up with a friend in the dept., who in turn got me a meeting w/ the VP. He is an extremely inspring man, started out as a janitor in one of our stores 30 years ago....now he has a beautiful corner / window offices, knows the CEO personally and is still a wonderful, modest, easy-going person. He was one of the most inspiring people I've ever met. We talked for a good hour and seemed to both enjoy the chat.
At the end of the meeting, in a careful way (he's not supposed to recruit in outside depts. and I am not supposed to formally ask for a job w/o my boss knowing), he let me know that when a position came open that he felt was a good fit, he would definately reach out to me. He also gave me information on 3 volunteer opportunities that I am eager to begin.
I have been smiling non-stop since my meeting!! :)
I need to get some thank-you cards out to those two people who helped make this happen!!
