Was it through a connection, school database, or did you just search and contact people on your own?

Saw the posting for the job online and filled out the application and sent in my cover letter and resume. I was selected to take the test and sat in a room with 300 other people and took an aptitude test. Passed that and had 2 separate interviews, then a background investigation. God knows how I was selected but now here I am.

One of my instructors in college left the school to take another job near the end of my first semester. I had applied for several jobs after graduating college with no avail and decided to send him an email inquiring if there's any openings and attached my resume. Had lunch with him a week later, then had somewhat of an informal interview with him and the procurement manager and got the job.

Tristan was like "hey, come work here," and so I did when I was still in college. Now I just keep on being promoted in the marketing department.

started off as a joke. they added me to myspace, accepted, hated the music they covered, asked if they were hiring thinking I would get some influence in there, asked to see some writing, showed it, and tada, I just did my first two articles for them. one full page spread for the cover story and a half page hyping some dance rock band.

wake up at 2 pm, listen to music, and write about it. best job ever.

I took that same test with about 25 other people and only 6 of us passed. I never received a followup call.

But with my current job it was kind of through a connection. My step-father used to work where I am but in an entirely different position. He heard there were openings and suggested I put in my resume. It was definitely because of him that I was bumped to the front of the line for interviews but it was myself that got me the job. I'm high as I am within my place because I fucking rule. Always working on promotions.

For me I just contacted the firm asking about any possible positions, and they called me back almost right away. I was kind of just contacting engineering firms knowing the likely answer would be "no, we currently don't have any positions available but just send your resume anyway". So during the interview I asked why they contacted me so quickly, and they told me that they were getting a bunch of projects for the spring and needed someone, but were hesitant to enter themselves into my school's database, seeing as the past two people from there were absolute nightmares for them. And they figured that i'd be a good employee since I contacted them on my own.
