Clever Man Landed 10 Job Interviews By Delivering His Resume In A Box Of Donuts

It’s no secret that trying to find a job in a professional setting can be tough. Though the economy may be on it’s way back up, more and more talented people enter the job market every day. It’s hard to prove to people that you’re the special snowflake that deserves to land the open position at their company.

One man who recently moved to San Francisco decided that rolling the dice and simply hoping his resume would somehow get noticed among the throngs of emails companies receive wasn’t good enough, so he took his destiny into his own hands. Many people suggest that you hand-deliver a resume to a company you are interested in , but Lukas Yla decided to take even that a step further.

Donning a shirt that read Postmates, a courier service that delivers food and other goodies, Yla swanned into prospective companies and delivered a box of donuts. When recipients opened those boxes of donuts, they were greeted with a note from Yla taped to the top and his resume behind it.

Yla, a self-proclaimed “marketing guy with 5 years of experience,” not only grabbed the attention of the companies he was visiting, but also proved that he can think of a pretty impressive marketing ploy in the form of delicious donuts from San Francisco’s Mr. Holmes Bakehouse.

It’s a pretty win-win situation: employers receive tasty pastries and Yla ensures that his resume gets a thorough look-over. As a result, Yla has landed 10 interviews so far with this tactic, but no word on if he’s found his new work-home just yet.

If Yla were to bring donuts in all the time, that might be another compelling reason to hire this grassroots marketing mogul. 

70-Year-Old Grandma Sends Granddaughter Glamorous Photos

Lots of grandparents are pretty hip with the times. They have smart phones, take selfies and even keep in touch via Facebook.

Alexa Rowland lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and her 70-years-young grandmother Ana Lorena, lives in Costa Rica. Because the two live 3,000 miles apart, they stay in contact through text message. They mostly exchange pictures of their family, but every now and then there are some surprises.

 

Seriously, how cute is that? Recently this Bad Mama Jamma upped her picture game sending some pretty fab snapshots of herself casually posing around a beautiful home.“She casually sent me those photos without saying much – haha,” Alexa said. Who needs word’s when you look this good?!

 

Get it grandma! Alexa thought her grandma looked too good not to share with the world, so she shared the images to her twitter account. “I just thought she looked too precious not to share with my followers,” Alexa said. She thought nothing of it until the tweet about her beautiful grandma received over 26,000 retweets and 77,000 likes!

Slay gma, slay!  “My abuela doesn’t realize how popular she’s gotten!” When Alexa told her grandma that people on Twitter couldn’t get over her glam looks, Alexa said, “she couldn’t stop smiling…. She was like what? Me?” YAS gma, you! 

Alexa said that her grandma, “motivates me to look my best and has helped me through a lot…She just radiates confidence and positivity. I feel like everybody needs an abuelita like mine in their life.”

Seriously, is Ana looking for anymore grandbabies? We want to learn how to be this glam when we turn 70… hell we want to know how to be this glam now.

Little Girl Nails Moana Song

Some kids just have a presence, there’s no doubt about it. Even at a young age, they have firm opinions and big personalities, and they can’t help but stand out from the crowd. That’s certainly the case in little Sophia Urquijo’s case. The four year old recently graduated from preschool for kindergarten, and at her class’s promotion ceremony, someone had the bright and adorable idea of having the children sing “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney movie Moana. The only problem is that Sophia LOVES Moana.

This doesn’t sound like a problem to most people, but she knows every word from “How Far I’ll Go,” and belts it out whenever and wherever she feels like it. So when her class got up in front of all the parents and teachers (which can be kind of nerve wracking for a lot of young children), Sophia did exactly that. Standing dead center of the group of four year olds, all of whom were barely mouthing the words, Sophia opened her mouth wide and sung the words as loud as she possibly could. Sophia’s mom, Michelle, absolutely loved it. “When I first saw her from the audience, I was a mixture of absolutely surprised and proud,” she said. “As the smallest and youngest one of her graduating class she had the confidence to get up there in front of an auditorium full of people and really be herself.”

Of course the video Michelle took of Sophia singing with her whole body and heart went viral once she posted it online, eventually earning more than 2 million views! We think it’s impossibly cute, and we hope Sophia never stops singing like that!

Ridiculous Signs That Prove No One Proof-Reads Anymore

Just a casual piece of advice from the internet: If you’re going to put anything in writing out in public (whether it’s on the internet or actually, you know, outside) make sure you double check it first. Seriously, look for spelling errors, think about ways it could be misconstrued, examine any images you included… just give it a once-over, okay?

Whew, now that THAT PSA is over, let’s take a look at some people who didn’t proof read their signs, and are now the laughing stock of the internet.

Take this winner. If you’re creating a sign for a high school, or any educational facility for that matter, you have to make sure you’re spelling everything correctly! The fact that this is a sign about literacy makes it all more cringe-worthy! The only redeeming possibility is that maybe Lakewood has their kids create the signs for them, and some snarky student thought he would have a laugh at the high school’s expense!

Or what about this gem? Sure that could just be a teacher pointing to the blackboard… but it doesn’t look that way. Maybe he’s giving a history lesson?

Ah… Dr. King. The first “Martian” to be awarded a PHD! It was such an accomplishment that we get a day off from school in January! … Right?

Hey, let’s give these guys a break. It’s not like they had their two spelling bee champions create the sign! They have more important things to do!

 

Seriously, schools?!? Get your act together, because this is getting embarrassing! At least they turned it into a teachable moment, right?

Finally, we leave you with this masterpiece. Let’s hope administrators have gotten better at planning since the building was created!
