Job hunting can be an exhausting experience. I have friends that put in hundreds of resumes after college and the results were not exactly encouraging. With so many people looking for jobs, company inboxes all over are overflowing with applications… so how is anyone supposed to get noticed?
Lukas Yla, a 25-yr-old marketing professional came up with a clever way to get noticed in a flood of hopefuls. Instead of trying to outdo his competitors, Lukas decided to outsmart them in the best way. He disguised himself as a delivery boy and slipped his resume in with a box of donuts, and it seems to be working.
Lukas has made over 40 deliveries so far and the interviews keep pouring in.
“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.”
Keep doing your thing Lukas! Surely the perfect job is right around the corner.
