A Nike logo is seen at the Nike flagship store on 5th Ave. on December 20, 2019 in New York City. Revenue in the North American market, which accounts for the majority of Nikes sales, rose 5% from a year ago. The company said its Jordan brand had its first ever billion-dollar quarter.

A woman has gone viral for a LinkedIn post about her recent job application experience and understandably so.

Karly Blackburn had her mind set on a job at Nike, so she printed her resume on top of a cake and sent it to the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.

Resume Cake

She sent it on the day she knew a party would be at the headquarters explaining, “I knew navigating Nike’s large campus was a feat, but combining a giant party with tons of people on top of that adds another layer of complexity to this delivery.” A helpful delivery driver helped complete the feat.

Nike has not commented.

I am all for finding creative ways to stand out! I don’t hate the idea at all. I do hope she at least sent a paper resume in, but at least Nike has noticed her! I would hope she wouldn’t try for the job if she didn’t have the skill set.

Do you think this woman will get the job?
