California woman shares “romantic” photoshoot of herself with her new job offer

By WITW Staff on August 11, 2016

While many couples choose to share photoshoots of their engagements and newborn infants online, one California woman has managed to catch the internet by storm with images from her own unique shoot with her “soulmate.” The “boo” in question, of course, was not a person, but rather a framed letter containing an offer for “the perfect job.”

Benita Abraham, a 37-year-old from Long Beach, California, had been joking with friends about how to celebrate the end of her grueling seven-month job search when she decided that she and her new job needed to make their relationship public. The Facebook album, titled “#Employed,” featured 17 images of the happy couple at the beach, drinking coffee, and even sharing a bed. “So excited to share my happy news with my FB family!” wrote Abraham on Facebook. “I finally found my soulmate, my perfect match, my boo. After 7 long months, I found the perfect job with a company that truly cares about its employees and one I will learn so much from.”

“It was just a way for me to kind of share this news in a silly and creative way that’s true to my personality,” said Abraham of the post, which she accompanied with hashtags such as #loveatfirstinterview and #notjustforbabiesmarriagesandbirthdays. Abraham has since had her first day at her new job, and, according to the newly-hired, the chemistry between the two of them is as good as she thought it’d be. “It was amazing!” Abraham gushed. “I learned so much, and it was just a half day.”
