Is this sentence correct:
1-I found the right person as a colleague.

Wouldn't 'for' be better? ;-)

I had posted a reply to this!
I'll have to do it again. Here goes:
Thank you Tdol,
I thought that "for" would be correct and "as" wrong. Actually I heard a sentence like that in a film and it struck me as strange. That's why I posted the question.
Cheers!
