Worked for myself doing speaking engagements around the country regarding Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency and organ and tissue donation

Marketing director of a large healthcare company saw one of my TV appearances, sent people to see me live, and contacted me about a position as a patient advocate and spokesperson.

Replied to an ad from a government contractor that does field work for municipal assessors offices all over New England. Parlaying the experience and training into a job in a city or town within the next year or so.

I manage the design of our projects. Since we have so many damn projects, it isn't possible for us to design so we contract the work out.

I had to ask the big big boss at my current place if she can write a reference letter for I can bring to my interview at another workplace next week.

Not even lying, I was a nervous wreck for like a couple of hours before I went into her office. Luckily, she was very nice about it and said she'll write one up for me this week.

Has anybody ever had to do that? Asking your current boss if he or she can be a reference for another employment.
