An idea worth spreading
It took three years and 36 hand-written letters for Andrew Davis to land his dream job at the Muppets in New York City. Twenty-years later, after building and selling his own advertising agency, he’s at it again. This time, he’s using his hand-written notes to revitalize the newspaper industry.
Warren Buffett is one of the only people investing in newspapers. Buffett’s purchased almost eighty ‘papers in the last year alone. Every Monday, since October of 2012, Andrew’s been delivering hand-written advice on how we can save the newspaper business.
Writing letters to some of the most influential people in the world has taught Drew a lot about how to land your dream job: write a resume for the job you want not the jobs you’ve had; don’t write about you, write about we; don’t apply for the jobs available, make yourself available to them; start at the top; and, do what no one else is doing. If you want to land your dream job, stop dreaming and start doing.
