I have landed a job! I will be the Marketing and Human Resources Coordinator for Burton A/C, Heating, Plumbing and More.

God has greatly blessed me in this. I simply applied for the job online and then applied what I learned from the book What Color is Your Parachute? 2015 edition. Thus, I went into the interview prepared having studied the company and its history. But above all, having done all that I could, God blessed me. I was in the right place at the right time and it was God’s will. But I also strongly feel like if I had not been doing all that I could-applying what I’ve learned at the OCN meetings and everything I’ve studied like the book What Color is Your Parachute?-God would not have given me this job. I also grew a lot from my employment woes and so in a way, I was blessed in that situation also.

Burton liked me so much they created the job for me, based on my strengths, skills, and personality. So now I’ll be making more money, in a job that’s a great fit that was designed specifically for me, with full benefits and even a company vehicle! Plus, Burton’s goal is to have me grow and move up and I’ll be working with the company president. And, it’s only 5 minutes from my place. My wife and I are ecstatic. I know God fulfills all His promises. Thank you for your help through the OCN.
