From Bagging Groceries to $80k Consulting Offer

I want to thank you so much for the invaluable support that you gave me these past months. Yesterday, I received an offer from my top choice consulting firm.

While not as prestigious as Mckinsey or BCG, the firm is top in its field when it comes to [Person's Favorite Industry] consulting, and that focus was what I was looking for.

I spent the last five months working in a grocery store after having turned down several job offers in finance and banking upon graduation last May.

I knew early-on that I did not want my career to turn completely towards finance or banking and so I decided to wait and search for other options.

I stumbled upon consulting by accident two months back and found that it would go perfectly together with my interest in the [Person's Favorite Industry] industry.

I knew it was a gamble for me to graduate without a job but after finding your site, the odds turned in my favor. Your advice on cover letters, resumes, and case interviews gave me the edge I needed.

After putting your advice into practice, I first saw interview requests, then final round interview requests, and now the offer letters are slowly trickling in.

Now I'm looking at an $80,000 offer, which for a guy who was earning minimum-wage, is UNBELIEVABLE!

I'd like to think that I did it all on my own but I know the truth: your advice gave me the support I needed to structure and execute my application and interview strategy. It works; your stuff really works.

Please keep up the great work and I will continue to follow your advice, especially those on being a successful consultant.

Happy Thanksgiving...you certainly made mine special.

My Reply:

What a wonderful note to receive on Thanksgiving day.

Congratulations on your belief in yourself, your persistence, your willingness to take a chance on what you really want in your life, and of course your offers.

All of the above are quite rare and I'm very glad it all worked out.  I'm also quite humbled by your thanks and happy belated thanksgiving to you too.
