"I don't know how to say this, but…"
I received word one day that I had lost my job, and had to start contacting everyone I knew for work. I knew Neil as an acquaintance from school, so I emailed him, asking him if there were any opportunities available where he was. He emailed me back saying that there was a position available in his department and he had gotten me an interview. I was hired, the job was awesome, and I was put right beside Neil so he could show me the ropes. I was pretty happy about this upturn of my fortunes and made lots of friends at the office. It was the kind of environment where everyone always goes out after work for drinks.
