    This article on Business Insider is a really interesting read and a really stark reminder for jobseekers that their dream is still attainable.

    Through a series of emails (8 in total) he finally got to meet the owners of Foursquare, got some time with them and got a job!

    The initial email is funny, take a read...

    Well done him, he took the time to research the company he really wanted to work for, then offered to work for free so that they could learn about him and what how he could be valuable to them. He seems to really enjoy what he's doing and will have a great future ahead of him.
