Job Seeker Disguises Himself As Delivery Guy, Delivers Resume In A Box Of Donuts

People are willing to lie on their resumes about jobs they never had, and they're willing to have their friends and family lie for them, in order to score an interview with a prospective employer.

But these simple acts of deception simply weren't enough for recent grad Lukas Yla- so he disguised himself as a delivery man and delivered his resume to potential employers inside a box of donuts.

Here's what Lukas had to say about this delicious act of deception:

“I had 10 interviews so far and I haven’t delivered donuts to all the companies I admire and love what they’re doing yet,” he said. “Recruiters, marketing pros and people in general love this kind of approach, it’s something you didn’t expect, fun and out of the box.”

“I was looking for the most direct way to reach decision makers at the companies,” he said via email. “I thought, that I might fail competing only on ‘resume’ level with other candidates that have work experience in San Francisco.”

It's cut and all, but I think it sends a bad message about the job market when people have to resort to gimmicks in order to so much as have a decent shot at professional employment. I believe these things go viral because people see it as encouraging, as a way of saying to other recent graduates, "Think outside the box." But unfortunately, outside the box is not where most of the jobs lie, and if these things pay off at all, they won't anymore once it just becomes expected that all serious entry-level applicants will do something flashy to get their resume noticed.
