Man Creates Shapchat Résumé to Apply for a Job at Snapchat

(Video Link)

Elski Felson wants to work for Snapchat, the company that makes the image instant messaging phone app of the same name. He faces a challenge familiar to most job seekers: being sufficiently interesting that a hiring manager will actually read his résumé instead of tossing it into the trash.

He could send in a paper résumé. But that won’t stand out from the dozens or hundreds of similar résumés sent in by his competitors. He has to be unique. To do so, Felson made a video résumé with the Snapchat app.

It’s a funny video, but Felson also takes the job application process somewhat seriously. He goes through the job description line by line and illustrates his ability to fulfill it.

He hasn’t heard back from Snapchat. I suspect that the video will open some doors for Felson somewhere. Some prospective employers may be put off by his style, but he probably wouldn’t want to work for them anyway.
