WOW - I got a “Thank you but no thank you, you don’t match our qualifications” letter today - in about 9 hours from the time I sent the CV and Cover Letter.

So, I spent some time and jotted… Continue reading My Story – And I’m Sticking to It
It started off with a delay of game. Calvin got off at 4.30 instead of 1.30 - so we travelled during traffic rush hour to AT&T Stadium. But we go there.
