Whatever happened to the kid with the Target tie?

If you spend any time on social media at all, you probably saw this image a few weeks ago.


Yasir Moore, who had a job interview at Chick-Fil-A , stopped at a Target store in Raleigh, North Carolina to pick up a clip-on tie to wear. But Target doesn’t sell clip-on ties; they sell real ties.

So a couple of Target employees helped him out. They also gave him some job-interview tips.

“They could have just sold my son a tie,” Najirah Parrish said. “But they took the time, helped him tie the tie and talked to him. They treated my son with dignity, respect.”

Whatever happened to Yasir?

He didn’t get the job, at least not yet. He’s already had two interviews with Chick-Fil-A and they’ll call him Friday with the “next step” in the job-getting process. Apparently, a kid showing up for a job interview at a fast-food joint wearing a tie — twice — wasn’t impressive enough for the kid to get hired on the spot.

But he went back to Target this week to say “thanks.”
