This time we're congratulating Laura, who found out earlier this month that her temp contract was finally ending and, within less than two weeks, in the middle of a recession, got herself a new, permanent job for this company, a customs brokerage and freight forwarding firm. She had an interview this morning (after interviewing for a different opening at the same company last week) and, by the end of the day, received the offer. Nice going, honey!
And while I'm at it, I'll add a congratulatory note for Mary Alyce, who recently heard from the first of several law schools she has applied to for the fall -- Hofstra, which accepted her. Good work, Smyrna girls!
