This homeless woman got a job after months of searching, and she got caught on CCTV dancing for joy

During a pandemic, finding a job is next to impossible, so when this woman learned she was close to having one, she could not help but dance for joy which was caught by a security camera. 

Kayallah Jones, who had been homeless for two years, applied to work at The Spot restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. In September, Dakara Spence, the manager who interviewed her, was impressed by her enthusiasm.

Spence commented, “I felt her energy when she walked in, she seemed so positive.”.

Jones walked out of the restaurant feeling excited after acing the interview. She checked the parking lot out front to see if anyone else was there when she got there. However, she failed to notice the security cameras.

Jones danced a little before walking away once the coast was clear. She had no idea that she was caught in the act by the security camera.

“I was excited about it. “I didn’t realize the cameras had caught me until I got outside,” she told CBS46.

The good news was Spence eventually called Jones to inform her she had been hired.

I called her phone and said, ‘I’m going to hire you, and I saw your happy dance, so you can continue dancing,’ and she was screaming into the phone. It was a beautiful moment for me,” the restaurant manager recalled.

Jones’ adorable dance video was also shared by Spence on TikTok.

“I hired this young girl today, and this is her response,” she captioned the photo.

The video has been viewed over 4.2 million times!

Despite the video of Jones’ happy dance going viral, Jones is grateful to have found employment, especially in these trying times.

Miss. Dakara didn’t realize how much I was going through, and when she gave me this chance and this opportunity, I was elated, excited and so overwhelmed that no one understood how happy I felt.

LaShenda Williams is a woman from Nashville who has a similar story. As a result of these challenges, she lost her home and lived in her car for two years.

Williams had moments when she wanted to give up, but she held onto the hope that tomorrow would be better. She just needed to find the right opportunity.

Her chance came when she met Jackie Vandal, a hiring manager at the Inglewood Kroger where Williams parks her car every night.

Every time Vandal posted a job opening at the store, Williams asked if there was room for her. She didn’t know her name then, but she felt her genuine desire to work at the grocery.

She explained, “You get a sense if someone is sincere or just trying to get a job and then quit a month later.”. “She was sincere.”.

Williams was one of the first applicants at the job fair. In order for her to be considered for the job, Vandal asked if she had already submitted an online application.

Williams walked back to her car to get her laptop because she hadn’t. Then she asked Vandal if she could plug it in the store, and then she started typing.

In between interviews, Vandal helped her complete the online application. When the “successfully applied” message appeared on the computer, Vandal hired her immediately!

Williams was able to afford a one-bedroom apartment after saving for almost a year. In addition, the community donated furniture, household items, clothes, and shoes to help her get back on her feet.

From this story, we can learn that we should never take anything we have for granted.
