Perfect fit

Nina was eager to nab the internship position in a leading business consulting firm.

“Ms. Sheila, this is my dream company. The competition for that position is fierce and yet I am not sure that my first degree and the work I have done are relevant,” she said.

“Nina, what it took to earn that degree and the stuff you accomplished at your work placements could only be done by having the attributes described in the advert,” I said.

She did not seem convinced. I got to work.

“Wow, I really am the perfect fit for this job!” she exclaimed when the email from All the Stories hit her inbox.

With a cover letter that showed how the things she had done matched the company’s needs, I could tell that she was going to walk into the interview with her head held high.
