Today, how this amazing stroke of genius changed the life of a Warrington student
A WARRINGTON student has been offered his dream job just 10 minutes after sending a message to a marketing guru showcasing the businessman’s new Wikipedia page.
Nathan Bickerton is a master’s student in digital business at Liverpool John Moore’s University, and after learning about Steven Bartlett, founder of Social Chain, as part of his studies, a quick Google search showed that he did not have a profile on Wikipedia .
Nathan quickly set about creating a new page, believing that the page could help Steven promote his new book Happy, Sexy Millionaire, which is due out later this month.
The 22-year-old tweeted Steven telling him what he had done, and within ten minutes he was offered a job as a paid intern in London.
He said: “I just thought here’s a guy who’s massive in the industry and who deserves a wiki page.
“So I wrote one to him, and within 10 minutes he responded back on Twitter and offered me a job.”
Nathan added: “He asked when I had written this page and I said ‘this morning’.
“It’s great because we were taught about Steven and the Social Chain as part of our training course.”
Nathan has been looking for a job for several months and feels that it is a “million for a chance” that he now has his dream role.
He said: I’m just amazed. You see these types of stories on social media from time to time, but you never imagine it could happen to you. ”
Steven said on his LinkedIn page: “I offered this young guy a job ten minutes after he sent me the message.
“He identified a blind spot I had, created a solution, got it done, and sent me a good message.
“This one action stood out more than the 500+ resumes I received this week.
“What a great demonstration of initiative.”
