Testimony

God’s Goodness Never Ends

My testimony begins in July of 2015, when I was told by my new boss that my role at my company doesn’t exist and it looked like I was going to be out of a job in September. I went home that evening and immediately started looking for a new job. I found one that looked exciting so I applied. I got called in to do several interviews for the company and made it to the final two, where I had to meet the Executive Vice President of Sales who would be making the final decision. Due to an internal restructure, that company decided to go for the other candidate and I was beyond disappointed. I then felt the Holy Spirit tell me to send the EVP a thank you note and request feedback so I could improve my interviewing skills. I did! He responded almost immediately. Rather than giving feedback, he said that a friend of his was looking for a Marketing Manager and wanted to know if it was ok for him to refer me. I agreed! He set up the introduction with his friend, who turned out to be the CEO of the company and it turned out that the EVP was on the company’s Board of Directors. After a long interview process, I got the job and started in January of this year. God’s goodness doesn’t end there! After three days I was given a promotion to Director of Marketing and a $10,000 pay raise without having to ask for one. The title also comes with a seat at the table where business strategy and direction is discussed by the CEO and the two other co-founders. Thank you Lord for blowing my socks off with your goodness.
