An intriguing job application

Hey! Does anyone read this blog anymore? I figured you all keep up with me through Facebook, but I really should start posting here again soon. Life has been a whirlwind!

Anyways, found an interesting job post on Craigslist today and figured I'd respond just for the fun of it! Part of the requirement is to read Tribes by Seth Godin, and he happens to be one of my favorite authors. I'm currently in the middle of reading Linchpin. I highly recommend it if you want to know what it takes to be indispensable as an employee or business.

The other half of the application requires that I answer their questions on my blog.

So, here goes:

What do you do now?

I'm a Barista for an independent coffee shop who is currently trying to keep it's head above water.

Why do you do it?

I love enjoying and sharing good coffee and tea and that's what we do.

What do you want to do?

I want to take on the challenge of making an impact in my community by doing something significant to help this coffee shop prosper.

Tell me a true story about making a change in the world.

I'm in the middle of the story! I've been spreading the word by mouth, through twitter, facebook, yelp, and other means about how good and unique our coffee shop is. I'm sharing all the ideas I have with my boss about getting the word out. I'm using my creativity to add relevant items to our menu that we are passionate about making and things our community is seeking. I'm not just a barista, I'm a linchpin and we are increasing the level of commitment to our tribe thus becoming a linchpin as a company in the community.

Make a wish.

To know God and enjoy Him forever.

What else should I know?

Hi, I'm Christina!
