ATH works in Japan!
Date: 3/9/00

I first bought your book some years ago. I must have read it hundreds of times. And I agree with all your writings. In fact I set out to do exactly what you laid out.

After researching a few firms I set my hopes on a single firm and using your techniques I was able to find the hiring manager and get an interview (on the phone!). The firm is in Tokyo (I live in Nagoya, Japan by the way) and using your techniques I was asked to come for a second interview. We talked only about the work and never once did those pesky HR questions show their face! I think I will probably get the job. I will keep you informed.

I could never have gotten this far without your book. I am now working on a presentation to make to the hiring manager and the team I will be working with. Wish me luck; but somehow I feel I won't need it.

Doing the job, not the interview, was the key to my success.

Thanks again for sharing your ideas and thoughts. Your book is now part of my permanent collection of great thinkers.
