Management Material

The only thing Judd was bummed about when he turned 30 was that he had not made it to the manager level in his career. He had applied for a couple manager positions at Delta, but never got the job.

A couple of months ago he found out that they were going to start an internal audit department in Delta. He watched the job postings and saw that a manager position was posted that he thought he had just enough experience to apply for. So, he applied immediately.

We waited and waited and waited. They never scheduled an interview. I encouraged him to follow up with the hiring manager asking about the status. Had they filled the job? Were they not hiring for it anymore? He heard back almost immediately and he had an interview scheduled for this past Monday.

After the interview, he thought that he had done well. Judd is extremely good at things like interviews and standardized tests. He just has that confidence about him. I guess it is true that opposites attract because I am terrible at both. I think I interviewed for about 1,000 jobs and only got 1 offer after college. Judd interviewed for 4 or 5 and had 4 or 5 offers.

Judd called me yesterday afternoon and asked, "Do you know any internal audit managers?" I replied, "Nope." He said, "YOU DO NOW!!" He got the job. I couldn't be prouder of him. I know he is going to do awesome in his new position.
