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.
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?
