    Default look for/ opening

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?

    It's a shame I didn't know he was looking for a job there was an opening in our firm which would have been perfect for him.

    look for = long for

    opening = vacancy

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
