I got my first post-university job through a hiring fair held at the university.  I was speaking to a software company rep who was looking for developers.  I asked the man: "Do you need a technical writer?"  He paused for a minute and said: "I hadn't thought about that.  I think we do."  So I handed him my resume and he called me a few days later and offered me a job.  When asked about my start date, I gave him a date a couple of weeks in the future... I had to finish writing my final exams first.  :)

Did she lose her job entirely, or did she get shuffled off into another department?

She managed to find a job in another department, but hoo boy, was she mad about losing the other one (can't blame her).
