and this is why i never, ever forget what i do can be amazing

Okay, this is something I'm not sure how to share the right way. It's personal and it's work related, so I'm going to try adn do this right, because I will say honestly that this is the second time in two days that I wanted to cry.

About two weeks ago, I interviewed a recently unemployed woman who was caring for her children and I think grandchild (this was about fifty-five interviews ago). I certified her for benefits and we were talking and she used to work for another agency a long time ago and I said, well, you should work for us.

Now--my clients are--most of them are burned out. It's like--it's like, some light went out of them. And I'm not anyone's idea of a beacon of hope, but I was talking to her, really *talking*, because weirdly enough, she *wanted*, and I told her about the temp jobs openings in the agency, the same job I have. It's only six months, but it's a good way to get into the agency. I printed out the job and the website, and I think an app, adn then I forgot, because I do this a lot.

Today, while upfront, I saw a familiar woman, but I was working on something else, and then she comes over and says, Jenn?

And I kind of blink and then she says, with this huge grin, like she just couldn't wait to tell me...

She says, I got the job.

Tonight's a lot of catharsis, I think.
