Subject: Thanks
Brendan,

Many thanks for your help with my resume story. Interviewing has been quite successful, in large part because I’ve been able to effectively communicate my past experience to the firms. I received an offer from my first choice Bain yesterday, and it definitely wouldn’t have happened without your help honing my 2 minute story and your insights about the message I needed to convey.

Subject: McKinsey Final Round
Brendan,

I got back from my final round interview with McKinsey and I am pleased to report that I got an offer. They said that I should be especially proud given the standard was set particularly high to achieve a lower yield in light of the economic conditions. Indeed, I am very proud and I am wanted to thank you for all of your help throughout the recruiting process. It sounds like it took close to a perfect showing to get and offer this year, and that would have been tremendously more difficult without your assistance. Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

-E, California

Brendan,

Thank you for taking the time to meet with me Thursday afternoon to give me the Harley Davidson profitability case. It was very helpful to run through a case before my 2nd round interviews with BCG. I have really enjoyed our meetings over the course of the recruiting period and appreciate all of your candid feedback.

The BCG interviews on Friday were pretty challenging, but I felt prepared, and was excited when I got a call from the partner on my way home and was extended a verbal offer.

Thanks again,

-J, Pennsylvania

Brendan,

I just wanted to thank you for all your help during the recruiting process. I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off before settling on consulting for the summer. Considering I entered the consulting process after Thanksgiving and was able to get offers from Bain, BCG, and McKinsey is a testament to how much your case preparation and advice truly helped me prepare for every interview. I greatly appreciate you taking the time, from 7am case preps to late night emails.

Thank you very much,

-J, Maryland

Hi Brendan,

Thanks again for your help with the case practice. Things have worked out well and I have two offers I will need to work through (Deloitte and ZS). Thanks again for your advice, recommendations and time!

Take care,

Brendan,

Thanks for the practice – it was well worth it. I got the offer from McKinsey! I couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks for everything.

Subject: BCG!
Brendan:

I got an offer from BCG for the summer! Thanks so much for your help in preparing…and you called it, it was a good fit with BCG.

Cheers,

Subject: Thank you
Brendan,

I wanted to write a short note to let you know that I signed with ZS this morning and am very excited about this opportunity. I also wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your help in coaching me through the recruiting process over the past 2 years. I think your advice and coaching was extremely helpful in preparing me for recruiting in this difficult environment.

Regards,

-M, New York


Subject: BCG
Hi Brendan,

I just wanted to thank you for your time yesterday. I really appreciate you sitting down after hours and going through the case. I think BCG went well! I took your advice and spent the 15 minutes or so before the case convincing myself I was a mathematical genius =). I don’t think I was as nervous in the numbers part.

Anyway, thanks and talk to you soon.

-S, New Jersey


Subject: Thanks!
Hi Brendan,

I am writing to thank you for organizing effective case interviewing sessions, the past couple weeks. The frameworks that were presented really paid off this weekend when my team won the Deloitte case competition!!! The main praise we received was on the framework of our presentation and I was a major contributing factor to organizing our team around a framework.

Thanks, again. I really appreciate your commitment to helping us through this process.

Subject: 3M offer
Brendan,

I got the 3M internship! Thank you so much for your help with it. I can say with a fair amount of certainty that, had you not taken that extra time to run through a mock interview with me, I probably wouldn’t have gotten the offer. This was my first and only case interview, and even though I “bombed” the mock with you the night before, your recommendations helped me to make the last minute tweaks necessary to pull it off.

Again, THANK YOU.

Best,

-R, Massachusetts

Subject: Update on job search situation
Hey Brendan,

Just wanted to update you on my current job search situation. After two weeks of intense recruiting, I am happy to have received three offers for my summer internship (from McKinsey, BCG and Booz Germany). The feedback was very good, especially the recruiters highly valued my ability to work through and solve the case. Thank you for the support and constructive feedback during the whole preparation process.

Best,

-M, Germany


Subject: Thanks
Brendan,

I am glad to share with you that I have got a summer intern offer from Goldman Sachs, New York office. I am incredibly thankful to you for your guidance and words of encouragement; your advice to keep poise and confidence made all the difference in the interviews. If your schedule permits I would come to CDC and chat with you in person.

Regards,

-R, India


Subject: Everest offer
Hi Brendan,

You may have heard from somebody in CDC that I got Everest’s offer. I was so excited about that! I’ve been visiting CDC couple times last week trying to tell you in person, but your office is always full. (You know you’re popular…)

Thank you very much for all the help and support that you gave to me in this process. I really don’t think I can make it had I didn’t receive your help. Hopefully I can finish my exam today or tomorrow and I can talk to you in your office before winter break.

See you later!

-J, China


Subject: Thank you so much!
Hey Brendan,

I would like to thank you for all your help and support throughout the second year recruiting process. I highly appreciate the time and effort you had put in to help me prepare for my interviews. Truly, without your guidance, it would have been impossible for me to reach second round interviews and finally, receive an offer from J&J. I believe had I sought your guidance in first year itself, things would have been much better for me.

I believe your inputs were very effective and very helpful for me. You always showed confidence in my abilities, which actually helped me perform well during the interviews. Your suggestions regarding my story or how to keeping the environment a bit jovial/less stressful were all very helpful and I can’t thank you enough for all your support. I have recommended my other classmates and students of 2010 to seek your guidance and they all have praised your cooperation and help.

In simple words I believe that “you’re the best!” and for me you deserve the ‘Friend of the Student Award’,

Regards,

-S, India


Subject: Mission Accomplished
Brendan,

Just to let you know: I received an offer from Booz & Co for South America. They only chose 4 out of all the American MBA’s.

This event confirms me two theories:

It wouldn’t have been possible without your invaluable help
I particularly suck interviewing with you but am way better with doing so with other people

Thank you again!

Best,

Ps: I’m also waiting this week for an answer from AT Kearney

Subject: Update
Hi Brendan,

Hope it’s a pleasant weekend. My second round interviews with BCG went well and they have extended me an offer. The cases we did (even the ones where I crashed and burnt) were very helpful. J

Thanks,

-T, China


Subject: Thank You
Hi Brendan,

I wanted to update you regarding the fact that I have been invited to interview with BCG next week. I want to personally thank you for being immensely supportive and helping me articulates my case to my contacts at the firm. I guess it did pay off to get me off the alternate list!

Thanks once again, and I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

Best Regards,

-S, India
