We’ve all been there. Young, fresh out of school, and looking for work. It’s a tough job market out there! It can be a constant source of stress trying to find a stable line of employment. We’ve all got to feed ourselves somehow, and some of us have more than just ourselves to feed. Nick Jajko explores a moment in his life that all of us can relate to but with a twist. He waits for his turn in a job interview when he sees a struggling mother in the waiting room.
She brought her kids with her. Puzzled, and even maybe a little annoyed, he asks himself, “Why would you bring your kids to a job interview?” He observes her for a moment, reflecting on her unusual choice, before he decides to do this. He walks up to her, introduces himself, and does something incredibly selfless. In a world where people have to look out for themselves, it’s truly touching to see someone who can sacrifice their time and effort to better someone else’s situation.
