In 2015, Santulli graduated with a degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics but he quickly realized he wanted an entirely different career. "A couple years after graduating, I knew I wanted to enter the world of tech — despite my non-tech major," he says. "Once I found out I landed an Executive Assistant interview with WayUp's CEO, I knew I'd have to get creative in order to get my foot in the door."

"I wasn't about to take 30 minutes with Liz for granted, so to stand out and prove I was serious about this opportunity, I decided to learn as much as possible about her," he says.

Indeed, Santulli scoured the internet and read every interview Wessel had ever conducted. "During my daily runs the week before the interview, I listened to every podcast Liz was featured on, taking mental notes of peculiar facts," he says.

After reading dozens of articles and nine separate podcasts, he walked away with two seemingly innocuous facts that would turn out to be his secret weapons for landing the job: her socks never match, and she studied Japanese. 

Wenger wants Bundesliga loan for Mavropanos

  Wenger wants Bundesliga loan for Mavropanos Arsenal are hoping to reach an agreement to loan out new signing Konstantinos Mavropanos to a German club, with talkSPORT reporting that Werder Bremen are the club most likely to land him. The Gunners confirmed the signing of the former PAS Giannina defender last week, spending a small fee of £2.2million on the 20-year old Greek. But Arsenal wants to loan the youngster out, to ensure he picks up valuable first-team experience, preferably at top level club. Talking about Mavropanos’ loan potential, Arsene Wenger said; “He is with us now, but the plan is for him to go out on loan to play somewhere.” “It can be a German club and I prefer him to play where he plays at the top level and gains experience.” “He is 20 and not ready to start for us, so it is important he gains experience.” The Greece Under-21 international has played just 20 times in senior club football with Giannina, scoring three goals.

On the day of the interview, Santulli was prepared for anything. After answering the typical interview questions he asked Wessel, "I was just wondering, do you still wear mismatched socks every day?"

Wessel was taken aback and said, "I do. Great research."

"Well, after hearing you talk about it on a podcast, I thought I'd give it a try today," said Santulli before showing off his own mismatched pair of socks.

After the interview, Santulli sent a follow-up email and signed off with "Arigatou Gozaimasu," which means "thank you" in Japanese.

"This 'sock stint' showed me that Brandon did in-depth research before coming in — not just a quick Google search — and that he was so enthusiastic about landing the job that he even showed it with his outfit choice."

Needless to say, Santulli got the job.

When he found out, Santulli says he couldn't have been happier. "I was ecstatic, and thrilled to see that my in-depth interview prep had paid off," he says. "To make a lasting impression — especially as a new grad with limited work experience — you need to differentiate yourself outside of work experience, which I was able to do!"

Paris Jackson 'robbed by hitchhikers' .
Paris Jackson was robbed by a pair of hitchhikers after her efforts to be a Good Samaritan went wrong. The 19-year-old model revealed in a series of expletive-filled videos posted to her Instagram Stories on Friday (12Jan18) that she picked up the pair the day before in Los Angeles. Paris said she even offered one girl her own socks to wear, and took them to a fast food restaurant where she bought them dinner. However, the only daughter of late pop icon Michael Jackson told her 2.5 million followers that the hitchhikers allegedly made off with Paris' debit card. “So, last night I picked up a couple of hitchhikers and one girl was pretty f**ked up," she began. "I mean I remember taking out a pair of my own socks and putting them on her and stopping at a f**king fast food place to get them dinner." Paris added that she didn't intend to make the Instagram videos to brag about being a Good Samaritan, but to share details about the shocking robbery. She also complained that she was treated like an Uber driver, after giving them a ride across Los Angeles. “I gave you guys a f**king ride across L.A. and I do my very, very best to be the best Uber driver ever, even though I’m not a part of Uber and you steal my s**t, dude? What the f**k," she concluded. One of Paris' latest images on Instagram is that of an unidentified roadside, which could be where she picked up the hitchhikers. She also shared a strange video of herself on Twitter on Friday talking about how much she loves sticks. It’s unclear if Paris reported the alleged robbery to authorities.
