Kayallah Jones submitted an application to work as a waiter at The Spot in Atlanta, Georgia. She had been homeless for two years, and things had gotten worse because of the outbreak the year before.
Jones arrived for her interview on September 1, 2020. Dakara Spence, the restaurant manager who conducted the interview, acknowledged her respect for Kavallah.
Spence saw that she had a pleasant aura when she entered, and she appeared to be very optimistic.
Jones performed a brief happy dance as she left the prison after understanding she had aced the interview because, like in most locations, there was a camera outside the institution.
anyone other than the security camera.
“I felt joy. When I got outside, I realized I was being recorded,” she told CBS46.
Dakara ultimately told her the news was true and made Kavallha an employment offer.
“She was actually screaming on the phone when I called her and told her, ‘I’m going to hire you and I watched your happy dance, so you may continue dancing. The restaurant manager reminisced, “For me, it was a beautiful event.
She captioned the photo, “I hired this little girl today and this was her response.
a feeling that the audience is all too familiar with!
Like many others affected by the global pandemic, Jones was overjoyed to secure the job. Due to a number of firms collapsing during the previous year, finding a job hasn’t been easy.
The statement made by Jones was, “Ms. Dakara didn’t know but I was going through so much, and at that point, when she gave me this chance and this opportunity, I was ecstatic, excited and so overwhelmed to the point where no one understood how happy and accomplished I felt at that moment.” The statement by Jones continued, “Ms. Dakara didn’t know but I was going through so much.”
Local Nashville resident LaShenda Williams shares a tale along similar lines.
The 46-year-old experienced various difficulties in life, which caused her to lose her home and spend two years living in her car.
Williams had the normal experience of feeling like giving up when dealing with life’s problems. She didn’t let that depress her, though, because she was confident that the right opportunity will arise. She kept going.
By chance, Williams ran across Jackie Vandal, a hiring manager, who was reserving a spot there every night.
Williams saw Vandal post a job opening and walked up and politely asked if they had room for her.
She claims that you can tell if someone is being honest or just trying to find a job so they can pretend they have one and quit a month later. She was very kind.
Williams arrived at the job fair that day among the early birds. After Vandal informed Williams that she needed to submit an online application, Williams grabbed her laptop and requested if she could hook in to the business so she could provide the necessary information.
Vandal helped Williams with her application, and as soon as he saw the message “successfully applied” on the screen, he hired her!
Williams had sufficient funds in savings to rent a studio. The community went above and beyond to help her out by donating furniture, clothing, and household goods. She finished everything in a year!
Jones and Williams show that it is advantageous to remain resilient and upbeat in the face of difficulties.
