I believe I have recently mentioned that Plexus asked me to serve as its representative on the planning committee for Metro Health’s 5th Transgender Job Fair. This was my first meeting. I wanted to portray a confident businesswoman and I think I did a pretty good job.
This necklace is a favorite of mine! The pink and grey tie in so well with the blazer and, of course, my sweater dress. Pretty cool to be sitting in a room with a number of other woman and making a real contribution to the meeting. I enjoyed simply “being”, focused more on the specifics of the meeting and not even paying any mind to my attire. I believe that shows a real sign of growth for me.
I talked at great length after the meeting with one of the committee members, hopefully laying the groundwork for a possible job. I am encouraged that my networking is finally staring to gain some traction. She is presenting me to HR, so we’ll see where this all takes me.
That’s really all for this story. Came home, cleaned up, hit the gym and killed dinner for the wife and I. One great day to be me!!
Update: Since the meeting, one of the ladies at the meeting, the one I talked with extensively afterward, has in fact submitted me to the HR department to see if they had a need for someone like myself. While my resume is all me, she did submit all the information as Kandi (with the explanation as to my circumstances). If this goes any further, it was be as Kandi, interview and all. I am simply seeking some part-time work and I have no earthly idea what I would do and if they even have anything available. We shall see.
