A student from Cheshire has been offered his dream job just 10 minutes after sending a message to a marketing guru showcasing the businessman’s new Wikipedia page.

Nathan Bickerton is a Masters student in digital business at Liverpool John Moores University and after learning about Steven Bartlett, founder of Social Chain, as part of his studies, a quick Google search showed that he didn’t have a profile on Wikipedia.

Nathan, from Warrington, quickly got to work creating a new page and thought the page might help Steven promote his new book Happy, Sexy Millionaire, which is due out later this month.

The 22-year-old Tweeted Steven telling him what he’d done and within ten minutes was offered a job as a paid intern in London.

He said: “I just thought here’s a guy, who is massive in the industry, who deserves a wiki page.

“So I wrote one for him and within 10 minutes he replied back on Twitter and offered me a job.”

Nathan added: “He asked when I’d written this page and I said ‘this morning’.

“It’s amazing because we were taught about Steven and Social Chain as part of our degree course.”

Nathan has been applying for jobs for several months and feels like it’s a “million to one chance” that he now has his dream role.

He said: I’m just astounded. You see these types of stories on social media from time to time but you never imagine it could happen to you.”

Speaking on his LinkedIn page, Steven said: “I offered this young guy a job ten minutes after he sent me the message.

“He identified a blind spot I had, created a solution, got it done, and sent me a nice message.

“This one act stood out more than the 500+ CVs I’ve received this week.

“What a great demonstration of initiative.”
