Article notably silent on whether she got the job.

Can you explain these gaps in your resume?

Sorry, somebody passed their fingers through there.

She got a delivery partner named Denise Baldwin.....

Mr Baldwin took the cake to the party....


Maybe an editor should send their resume cake to NDTV

Seems like a lot of trouble.  Just be a 12 year old with nimble fingers who'll work for a nickel an hour.

I would say at least include a few hard copies under the plate. It's cute and attentive, but you're aiming at people who at least adopt a "healthy" position.

I wouldn't even want to get hired after doing that. None of your coworkers would ever talk about anything else for your entire career there. "Hey look, there's that biatch who bribed her way in with a cake."

Warthog: Article notably silent on whether she got the job.


It's buried in the article:

She also said that the company is currently not hiring candidates for any position.

The same person who does this will also use the medium to send passive-aggressive messages to coworkers

...did she also have it printed on the base under the cake?

"I like this idea, very creative, but her phone number is half missing."

"[popular basketball player...I don't know, I don't know any....Michael Jordan?] Oh, I just ate that piece, sorry."

Bullpucky. Per that site, there are 1,802 open positions, 475 of which are in technology.

A resignation cake would be interesting. Would anyone dare taste it?

Seriously, imagine thinking that Nike "is currently not hiring candidates for any position."

Her LinkedIn profile screams "I'm a people person, damn it." Reading it makes my teeth itch.

FTA:"What better way than to send a cake to a big party. I was brainstorming with my former colleague Trent Gander. When he said, 'Karly do better, this is a creative place, show up in a creative way'," she added."

In a world where Is It Cake is a hit competition show, a basic sheet cake with a boring resume isn't going to cut it. For example, this is what Adidas is doing with their cake game

This shoe is actually a CAKE

Sending in food items? Might as well send them random USB drives or leaking packages that are ticking.

As cute and clever as she likely thinks this was, it's also poor judgement from a security standpoint. It's as bad as printing her resume in comics sans.

FTFA: According to Ms Blackburn, she inspired Mr Baldwin that day which was a great achievement for her. "You have inspired me. This was meant to be. I am a mom and I am tired of doing Instacart. I know I have more abilities and qualifications to get something better. I'm so glad this worked for the both of us," Mr Baldwin told her.

<scratches head>He self identifies as a Mom? Okay. You do you Mr. Mom.

Later:
"Damn that was a good cake. Creative and unique idea too, I was really impressed!"
"So, are you going to hire her?"
"I can't. We ate all the contact info."

Edible panty resume saying "Just do it" might be an appropriate and funny way to land a job in porn.    Sending a cake to  a corporate office won't even get seen by office staff.  Security guys would "toss it out" for safety and then eat it later when nobody is watching.

No shiat. Any job that I've ever worked at would refuse a cake that was from someone who doesn't work there, whom they have no knowledge of, who had it delivered by a third party. At least I'm pretty sure they would.

But I guess now it's on the internet, so maybe some young startup outside the box, creative, and totally unique company looking to make creative chemical weapons will hire her on.

Just as an aside, is there a professional way to write "I am completely and utterly not a people person, damn it."

I feel my LinkedIn profile needs that.

"No human facing jobs, thank you."

"Works great in a team, of robots."

I have my resume tattooed on my arse. I prefer to personally show it to HR but I rarely get the chance. Usually I'm turned away, and often forcibly ejected by security or even arrested, when I present my "cover letter".
 
2022-09-27 4:02:29 AM  
Did she get the job? Even if she didn't, she has something of a much greater value. She has a wonderful friend. Jobs come and go, loyal friends are forever.

If someone did that quietly and it worked I would be impressed.

Not much flavor but it smells like freshly cut grass when you cut it, curious.

Denise Baldwin is the real hero, who made sure it went to the right party instead of dropping it off at the front desk as the instructions asked.

It's a great way for you to lie on your resume because the evidence will be destroyed either through eating or through mold.

I'm assuming she means there's no positions open within Valiant Labs.

Regardless, her intention isn't necessarily to get hired HERE, just to get her name+ creativity out into the world. And in that, she seems to have succeeded. Now comes the part where we see if she manages to get a job somewhere.

Mr. Baldwin's first name, according to the article, is "Denise." I suspect that, like many 3rd and lower tier media organizations, NDTV's editorial staff is either nonexistent or lacking in anything resembling critical thinking or editorial skills.
