Please wish me luck for this excellenet opportunity

Hello everyone, I just came from an interview of a lifetime. Hartz Corp. is looking for a Marketing and sales specialist for their fish product division and hope they consider me for it. Doe's anyone work for them or a competiter? Now that I sold my company, I am looking to persue a career in sales or management, or marketing for any company that has to do with freshwater or marine life products or foods. I shall be praying every day, until this happens. I am willing to relocate anywhere in FL or if the positon is in NY, NJ, CT, I will accept it.

PS: I have enclosed my resume, just in case.

I edited some personal information out of your post, it's not considered a good idea to post that stuff in public view. It is not against the rules here, so if you want it there, feel free to put it back in, until then you can contact Richard by pm
