Today I gave a work reference for a student who took the first class I taught at FHSU last spring. This student applied for
a position at Nex-Tech, coincidently in the department/office I used to supervise.
9:10 pm cst
What impressed me
most about this particular student was her desire to apply classroom theory into real-life experience: specifically,
she "got the point" of networking effectively and marketing herself in a genuine, natural and positive manner. Very
few students understand how a teacher can serve as a contact or connector, let alone reach out and develop a relationship.
This student did and she asked if I would serve as a reference, which I gladly did. If all goes as I anticipate, this young
lady should be offered a job.
Dang, I LOVE it when something works out the way it is supposed to do!
