"I was so focused on landing the job that I didn’t even notice the Tall, Dark and Handsome (TDH) HR dude who sat in my interview that kept staring at me. I noticed him but kept wondering why he was so quiet and didn’t ask any questions as he hardly spoke," she narrated.

But after the interview, Okonji could not get her mind off the quiet gentleman at the interview. Two weeks later, she received an offer letter and started her job. Soon after, she and her interviewer started a friendship that blossomed into a beautiful relationship.

"We knew that for us to take it to the next level, one of us had to leave the organization, but we continued our plans in faith and believed that a new job will come in due time. God at the right time blessed him with a job on my birthday April 8," Okonji wrote.
