I’ve recently landed a position as an Equity Research Associate and I’d like to thank you for your assistance over these last few years. I have absolutely no doubt that this post of yours (http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2014/02/facebooks-hiring-surprise-and-what-it.html) directly led to me getting hired. To be sure, there are many other helpful posts as well, but this one in particular really tied it all together. No doubt about it.
I read Browne’s book the night you put that post up, made a few modifications to my application approach and completely revamped my interview style based on Browne’s suggestions. The result: I was able, in 1 hour, to convince 2 research analysts to make me an offer.
