A man in Michigan landed his dream job last week with a little help from the internet.
Jeff Mix, from Michigan, recently started working at his local Costco after his daughter, young adult author Rebecca, tweeted about his desire to work at the wholesale retailer last month.
"My dad has been laid off due to covid and now that he’s vaccinated he’s itching to go back to work, so I told him I’d help him with his resume," Rebecca tweeted in early May. "I asked him where he wants to work, and he said, SO earnestly, ‘costco seems like a nice place.’ I’m gonna cry lol."

In a later tweet, Rebecca added that her dad is "but a constantly cheerful man, extremely good at making nachos, who merely dreams of working for costco."
"Costco ik ur not on twitter but if you see this please don’t let him down," she added. "My dad is very nice. Look at how proud he is."

Almost two weeks after those initial tweets, Rebecca posted an update in the same Twitter thread.
She wrote: "GUYS OH MY GOD????????????" alongside a picture of a message she received from a manager at a Michigan Costco.
In that message, the manager wrote, in part: "Our CEO was made aware of your tweet regarding your Dad wanting to work for Costco and it’s made its way to my desk through various channels."
