North Carolina woman Karly Blackburn put a creative spin on the job hunt: By putting her resume on a cake.
Blackburn wanted to apply for Valiant Labs, an incubator for Nike. Because it's a creative environment, she decided to approach her goal in a creative way...and it worked!
First, she had an edible picture image placed on the cake. Then, she asked her Instacart driver to bring the cake to Valiant Labs.
In a LinkedIn post, Blackburn claims to have upcoming interviews with Valiant Labs and other companies as well.
Update: Amid a growing sea of creative, well-qualified applicants, Karly Pavlinac Blackburn stood out from the competition with a resume sheet cake that she had hand-delivered last fall to Nike headquarters via Instacart delivery. She got the job!
