CSB: When I was in HS I applied to a summer programming class at NYU. I translated my application essay into binary (I didn't actually know how to program yet so I had to do it manually. It was also a long time ago so I had to print it out on a dot-matrix printer.). On the first day of class the professor told that class that "someone" had sent in their essay in binary and what a bad idea it was because it made their job harder. Since I was already accepted by that point I figured it worked out fine.

jennies1897: Cluckity: People have been doing this shiat for years in marketing, especially when going for an agency job. Agencies eat this shiat up. Their business model relies on people dreaming up shiat that they can bill by the hour.

I worked at an agency that hired an office manager because she sent chocolates every day for a week.

I also worked at an agency where they hired someone who did the old send a tennis shoe in a box trick. (note attached: "Now that I've got my foot in the door, please give me a call ... "

Clearly, true dedication would have been including a candy mold of her foot with some sort of delicious filling.


True dedication would have been sending a real human foot.

lack of warmth: He won't keep the job, once they find out he is a butterfinger.  Till then he'll be living on 5th Avenue.


Hey, he's just looking for a payday like the rest of us.

If I got one of these candy bars from a potential hire, I'd be kind of excited until I opened it. Then, I wouldn't hire him simply for the fact that he sent me a farking Nestle Crunch. At least send something that actually tastes good. Might as well have sent some tootsie rools or a Chik-O-Stik.

My resume on a condom package worked, but I got screwed by the company about two months later by a guy whose resume was on a jar of Vaseline with sand in it.

shiat like this is perfect for people in marketing. It's a chance to show that you have the necessary creativity and skill for the job.

And of course: now that he has a job, he won't need a Sugar Daddy anymore.
