I moved to London, early in my career, without the promise of a job, yet my drive and determination helped me make the plunge. I’d only been there for a short time when I was walking down the street near Piccadilly Circus and coincidentally ran into my old boss from Australia, whom I hadn’t seen in two years. Delighted to see each other, we started talking and I discovered that she had a new office in London—just across the street— and she had an opening. Within the hour I was gainfully employed and was struck by small world coincidence that had brought such a fortuitous blessing into my life.

It was surreal to all of sudden be working not only for my old boss and company, a recruitment firm, but to also be working with some of my old colleagues from Australia! What were the chances that on my first day of job-hunting in a foreign country, I would run into her and be offered a job on the spot?! I will never forget my roommates’ expressions when I told them what happened and that I already had a job in such a short amount of time. That experience brings to mind the saying, “Be careful, we’re living in a small world.” You really never know when you might run into someone—even your old boss on the other side of the world.
