Tom finds a good Job

First he had to learn German, and then we had to find a job for him. Newspaper ads proved to be useless. Good thing I know a few people. The old saying is still true: *it's not impotant WHAT you know, it's important WHOM you know*.

A small IT consulting company was willing to hire Tom as a mainframe programmer, even though he had never worked on a mainframe at all, just based on the fact that I said *I know he will be able to do this*.

And he was, with some training from his employer, and some help from me. Tom learned fast, he enjoyed his job, and it looked like our future would be smooth sailing.
