A woman in the United States used an innovative technique to send her resume to the company she was applying to – she printed it on a cake. Karly Pavlinac Blackburn took to the social media platform LinkedIn five days ago to reveal how she applied for a job at Nike. While sharing a after she also shared a photo of the cake that had her resume printed on it.
“A few weeks ago I sent my resume on a cake to Nike. Yes, an edible resume on top of a cake. Nike had a big party for JDI Day (Just Do It Day). LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick + Other Megastars were I had done some research and found a division within Nike called Valiant Labs, a startup incubator for Nike ideas,” Ms. Blackburn wrote.
She also said that the company is not currently hiring for any position. She did this because she just wanted them to know about her. “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, let yourself be creative. see’,” she added. .
Mrs. Blackburn started thinking about having an edible resume cake delivered to a party she wasn’t even invited to. She also said she wanted to go all the way from North Carolina to Beaverton, Oregon. The woman found a grocery store that made cakes with edible images on them. She got a delivery partner named Denise Baldwin that day who gave her a key role in the whole plan.
Ms Blackburn spoke to the delivery partner on the phone and he agreed to deliver her cake to the place she wanted. Mr. Baldwin took the cake to the party and when asked to leave the cake on the table at the reception, he said, “No, I need to see this go into their hands. I promised Karly I’d give this cake to you.” the right person.” He also navigated the Nike campus, holding a sleeping child in one arm and a cake in the other.
According to Ms. Blackburn, she inspired Mr. Baldwin that day, which was a great achievement for her. “You inspired me. This was meant to be. I’m a mom and I’m tired of doing Instacart. I know I have more skills and qualifications to get something better. I’m so glad this worked for both of us said Mr Baldwin to her.
