Career, Coincidences

Unintentional Networking Coincidence

So I recently applied for a job at a company “Acme”. Then I saw on LinkedIn that a friend, “Bob,” from my previous company knows two people at Acme. I asked him to send a recommendation.  He did and I have an interview with their HR person on Thursday.

Yesterday I met a different ex-coworker, “Dave” for a drink. Upon hearing that I have an interview at Acme, coincidentally Dave told me that he has worked with them integrating Acme’s services into the research product that he manages.

And that deal was brokered by Bob.

So Dave gave me a valuable breakdown of Acme’s services and their value proposition,  AND offered to mock interview me tomorrow to prepare.

BOOM!
