Talk about a friend who studied with you or helped you in any way. Please say

– Who is he/she?
– Where and when did you meet?
– Why did he/she help you?


I’m an extrovert person and have numerous friends. However, my closest friend, Tim, who lives in the United States, once helped me in securing a job in the McKinsey. (Introductory sentence. Name of the friend.) 

Tim and I have been friends since the age of five when we were neighbors. We studied in the same school and later attended the New York University. After graduating, I joined a reputed Chinese Finance firm and moved to Shanghai while Tim chose to stay in the New York City and work for McKinsey. (When and where did you meet him?)

Since we are friends since childhood and I have worked in Asia, Europe, and North America, Tim recommended my name for the position of a senior Asia and Europe Consultant in McKinsey. Luckily, I cracked the three rounds of interview and will be joining the reputed company in coming December. (Why did he/she help you?)

Follow-up Questions:

– Do you help others?
– Why do you do it?
– How do you feel after that?
