At Like a Boss, we know that one little thing can have a huge impact. So we just love reading about 24-year-old Laura Orsini, a journalism graduate who just landed a hard-to-get job as a result of one guest blog she wrote for 100 bucks.

Laura responded to a post by Susannah Breslin on her’s blog Pink Slipped, in which she put the call out for a young woman journalist between the ages of 18-25 to pitch an article for a one-time-only guest blogging spot.

Here’s what happened next, as described by Laura in an article by Media Bistro:

The day after my article ran, I got an email from Owen Thomas titled, “Not sure I agree with you about a lack of journalism jobs.” I had already heard about Owen from my days as a Kotaku (Gawker Media) intern and from reading about him on Penelope Trunk’s blog, so I was definitely interested. We had a phone interview, I gave him my references, and accepted the job on Thursday. The Forbes article didn’t “help” me get a gig with the Daily Dot, it was the major catalyst!

Proof that putting yourself out there can make great things happen! Congratulations Laura, and good luck at your new job!
