About two years ago, I was also as jobless as jobless can be - away from home and penniless. Yes, dear reader - penniless. I was so poor I couldn't even afford to buy medicine for the fever I caught due to excessive worrying.
But lo and behold! The internet came to my rescue. Internet, websites and email. I started searching the big WWW like a crazy lunatic - exaggerated a bit there - submitting my CVs to job search engines and job seeker pools and emailing former classmates like there's no tomorrow. After more than a week of this insane behavior and several interviews past, I got a whiff of fresh air and was hired by a local hotel chain to be part of their internal audit group. And now, I supervise the said group as their "head".
Of course, as other companies, I wouldn't be able to sit on this chair without it being vacant, right? And because I transferred my butt to this chair, I needed more heads to compensate for the extra space!
At first I was not told to participate in the hiring process like in the interview part, but later we all realized (except for the HR) that we needed to improve our hiring process just like this where I already signed up.
