This is certainly pretty creative, and it looks great. Maybe I'm cynical, but it also comes off as extremely of desperate.
I guess startup people go absolutely cuckoo for this kind of Kool-Aid drinking among employees in SF, but i find it off-putting.
Agree. Nothing wrong with putting in this much effort but at the same time, have some respect for yourself.
I respectfully disagree. I'd hire this person.
That settles it. One can't possibly take more than one job offer.
I'd hire her if she sent that to me... In my experience with hiring & interviewing, you never really know how much scrappiness / perseverance someone will bring into your company. Sure, their skills check out but, will they push through when they get stuck and there's a deadline looming or will they find an answer because they're scrappy and innately want to work for your company?
A lot of applicants do the bare minimum to get by(meaning they only do what is asked, which is normal) but, the ones who actually show you how much they want to be in your org and how much value you they'll bring (especially when it's unsolicited) makes it that much easier to see they're a no-brainer hire. Imagine if a designer applied and said "I ran through your product and your on-boarding is horrible, so I re-did it and here's my reasoning why" along with their application. (yes, they might not know the business cases but, that's not the point).
P.S. I don't live in San Fran, nor do I drink the kool-aid, commenting on why I think her creating that is a hell of a way to get hired.
I found this really funny for some reason.
It would be hilarious if Slack actually took her up on that
So yeah, we hired sb/sth
I think that's gonna be a meme :)
Good luck to her :-) Creative idea.
Very cool. And as everyone has said, a lot of respect for pursuing this through. I like the progression from the first site/application to here as well.
It takes a respectable dose of passion and focus to develop this kind of application. I hope Slack is smart enough to hire her.
This is cool. Is it just me or is there not one place where she explicitly says what job she's looking for? Im assuming project manager or support but I'm not fully getting it, especially after seeing this site which is obviously somewhat designed and developed. That would be wise to state rather then waste a hiring managers time trying to find out what role she's after
Whoa, a testimonial on behalf of Canada ;)
Great work. I hope she's get hired by Slack.
Definitely well made if not the most original. Really shines of work ethic and investment. Best of luck to her.
I'd say only thing is re-work the copy for grammar and tone in some places.
Clever. There are a few grammatical errors (especially on the answers page), but overall a pretty clever way to apply for a job. Good luck.
This is amazing!
They'll definitely get hired...whether it's at Slack or not, who knows, but guaranteed a recruiter(s) sees this and pings them.
Hehe, really nice. I think someone pulled a similar stunt recently but for Airbnb with a resume that looks like their Host profile page. Some really go the extra mile for that dream job, I hope she gets it.
Emulating a prospective employer's website in resume format is pretty lame IMO.
The guys over at Airbnb or Slack might disagree.
Really cool! Upvoted.
I've got a huge respect for this. Nice!
