I heard this story about a boy who loved “xyz” store, He wanted to work there, that was his dream job.

So he created a strategy for it…


One morning he showed up at the store and ask the manager if he could help out folding some clothes. The store manager agreed.

The kid folded clothes, took the garbage out, engaged in conversations with customers and employees and even swept the floor.

At the end of the day, he approached the manager and thank him for giving him the opportunity to help.


The next day, he came back and asked the manager if he could help folding clothes again. To which the manager agreed.

The same thing happened…

He folded clothes, took the garbage out, engaged in conversations with customers and employees and swept the floor.

Everyone in the store was happy that he was giving them a hand.

At the end of the day, he approached the manager again and thank him for letting him help.


After the third day, when he was leaving…

The manager asked him if he wanted a job, to which he said yes!


As you can see in this story, the kid was able to get a job in the place that he wanted to work and he didn’t even have to go through all the recruitment process!


He achieved this because he “sold” himself to everyone, by proving that he could be a valuable “asset” for the store. Everyone liked him and welcome him, they were happy that he started working there.
