Kayla Got The 411: #GirlPower
I was at work and this lady was 15 minutes late for a interview. I come in from break and she's by my desk. I said " hey have you been helped?" She let me know she was here for a interview in accounting. She said "they're doing work on Interstate 285 so traffic was hell, coming from Stone Mountain".
So I called over and the person who interviewed her has a, reputation of being a "strict"
She said "Did that lady just get here?"
I paused and just instantly lied.
"It looks like she's been waiting in the lobby, I came in and saw her just sitting. I just came back from break no one has helped her, but I will send her over".
The girl said "OMG thank you". I said it's ok good luck on your interview.
30 minutes later she came and found me and hugged me. She said, "girl thank you for having my back. I got the job, I start Monday". I told her we black women gotta look out for one another. Just women in generally. I'm happy you got it. She was so happy. She said sadly most women especially black women don't stick up or help one another as much. I told her no problem I have been there and I understand. She said lunch on me lol.
It truly warmed my heart. I didn't do it for a reward. I know when you travel for a interview anything can happen to cause you to be late. Things happen. Seeing her happy made me happy. I truly believe if I told her interviewer she was late and just arrived it would of ruined her chances.
So girls let's look out for one another. One compliment or kind gesture can do alot for another woman. Girl power.
