I landed the job I have now a little over 4 years ago. At an appreciation dinner in April, I had the opportunity to talk about all the changes our office had been through in the past 18 months. My former boss was in attendance. I pointed out how excited I had been to get the job and mentioned that I had even sent a follow-up email to him expanding on why I was the right person for it. He smiled at me from the audience and said "And that's what put you over the top"
