So today I was thinking about who that gentleman was I saw and perhaps he was one of the late owners of the company? I googled him today and of course, looks just like him. I wonder if he was doing me a favor by getting me hired there for the valuable experience it gave me and he was seeing me out the door. He was a big supporter of the school I just graduated from and was dedicated to mentoring younger architects.
I feel as though the experience wasn't a coincidence and the entire time I worked there, something didn't feel right. Saying things like, "at least I've been learning Revit which is great for my resume" even though there wasn't a sign that lay-offs were immanent. Plus I was just hired. The whole thing is pretty mind blowing that Peter would appear to me. I just wish that I could have met him in life. He seemed like he was an amazing architect and person.
