WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- A Georgia Tech student landed an internship with a prestigious tech company by using sticky notes to spell out “HIRE ME” on his dormitory window.
- NCR, a Fortune 500 company, is located across the street where second-year computer science student Gursimran Singh lives.
- Singh was delighted to see that someone in the NCR building replied, “EMAIL?” using their own sticky notes across their window.
“I never expected them to continue the conversation, but they did, so it was pretty amazing for me,” Singh told CNN.
“I spent a lot on sticky notes, but it looked pretty cool,” he said in a Georgia Tech news release.
He got the job but in a peculiar twist of fate, Singh recently joined in Georgia Tech’s annual HackGT hackathon event, sponsored by NCR. Using the company’s technology, Singh and his team won the competition. They won a direct internship offer from NCR for the summer of 2020.
