Recently, I got a mail via LinkedIn; they have an opening and they thought I will fit the role. I was to come for an interview. Yaay! I thought, happy me. I have been trusting God for a job for a long time now. The role was that of a Client Solutions manager, reporting directly to the CEO. I knew it was a big role, so I got all the necessary materials and judiciously prepared for it.
Although I had my reservations about the role and even doubted my qualification and experience, I still went with confidence. I got to the venue and I met the panel – the Head of HR, The COO, CEO and it was a very demanding process. I did both written and oral interview and answered tough questions.
After a while, I was called back inside. The CEO said although he liked my confidence and enthusiasm he wasn’t going to give me the job. He felt I still needed to fill some skill gaps. I am a Digital Marketing Expert not a Client Solutions Manager.
While I sat down there feeling disappointed, his next statement surprised me. He was offering me a scholarship for the training I needed to get the necessary skill gap! I sat still, thinking about the whole scenario. When I checked my mail, the confirmation to my scholarship was there and it was a huge sum! Something I would not have been able to afford.
The training will give me an edge and put me at an advantage in future. I give God the praise because I am not disappointed at the turn of events.
