I saw an ad in the newspaper (remember when you looked for a job in the paper?) for a small, Catholic college in Nashville called Aquinas College. They were looking to hire a recruiter for their school. Perfect! That is the exact job I had at West Texas A&M. So, I sent my resume and cover letter and received a call for an interview.
I don't know if I had ever even met a nun much less worked for one.
When I went for my first interview (I think I had at least 3 or 4 and they lasted for hours), I was a little surprised to see so many women, of all ages, wearing full habits. If you don't know what a habit is, I didn't either. It is what the Sisters wear. Different orders wear different habits. The Sisters I worked for were the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia. They wear black veils and white robes.
I went through a grueling interview process....really! It was! And why they hired me, not being Catholic, was nothing short of a miracle. Considering that I would be "the face" of the college at high schools, college fairs, etc.
But God knew exactly what He was doing.
This is my story...
