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. 

Artist Creates New Succulent Nail Art Trend

Unlike those of us who somehow manage to kill even the heartiest plants, some people just a have a knack for plants. If you fancy yourself a person with a green thumb, you might want to think again because an Australian artist has taken the meaning to a whole new level.

Roz Borg, artist and “succulent enthusiast,” has been spending a lot of her time creating living jewelry out of succulent plants and saw an opportunity to incorporate itty bitty succulents in a new itty bitty way. “I had been making real succulent jewelry and wanted to use the same application on something I had never seen baby succulents used on before,” said Borg.

Borg takes very small “baby” succulents and, using Oasis floral adhesive which is a glue that keeps plants alive, glues the tiny arid-loving plants onto acrylic nails and creates beautiful bouquets and arrangements right on her fingernails.

Since posting her beautiful nails on Instagram, her photos have become wildly popular. Borg does admit that the manicure is “definitely not practical,” but the beauty and unique nature is worth it to her.

Don’t worry, plant lovers. The baby succulents get a second life after their stint on fingernails. “The Oasis glue eventually releases and I can plant the baby succulents and they can grow happily,” said Borg, “It’s definitely a temporary green thumb,” she explains. 

 

Baby Girl Inherits Incredibly Rare Birthmark Like Mom

Like it or not, we are just little versions of our parents. For better or for worse, we inherit both good and bad things from our genetic donors: crooked teeth, blue eyes, blood disorders, intelligence, etc. Very seldom are we born with a completely unique trait or mutation that didn’t have some sort of inherited basis from one of our parents’ DNA. Some of these traits we may not see in children immediately after birth, but some inherited traits are blatantly obvious.

When Brianna Worthy gave birth to her daughter, she was anxious to see if her baby girl would inherit one of her favorite traits about herself. Lucky for Brianna, this trait was an easy one to spot. Both mother and daughter have a shocking white streak of hair originating near their widow’s peak.

Brianna, who inherited this trait from her mother, was hoping that baby MilliAnna would carry on the family trait. As soon as Brianna laid eyes on her daughter, she saw that MilliAnna had also inherited the family trait just like she hoped. It was apparent. “I was hoping she did have it. My younger sister that my mother had a few years after me didn’t get it, so I didn’t know if MilliAnna was going to, but once I had her and they laid her on my chest and I saw she had it I was so happy,” said Brianna.

The white streak of hair is the result of a condition called poliosis. It causes the lightening of skin and the hair around it. The condition proves just how strong genetics can be, as Brianna’s mother and grandmother also have the same distinctive white streak of hair, as well.

The striking hair is beautiful and distinctive, and Brianna hopes to raise her little girl to embrace this unique trait that has been passed on to her, even though her unique trait may bring in some criticisms. Brianna said, “I plan to raise my daughter knowing she is beautiful and special and to not listen to people mean comments at times.”

On America’s Got Talent Melissa performed some dead on celebrity impressions featuring Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Girl’s got serious skills! Well Melissa is back at the impersonation game and this time she is taking on the triple threat herself, Jennifer Lopez.

Of course, no JLo impression would be enough with just the voice, she’s got the look down too! Is that Jenny from the block? To be fair, the look isn’t all Melissa, she had some help courtesy of some Snapchat filters.

Have you ever thought about how JLo plans out her day? Sure, she probably has an assistant to do all of that for her, but we absolutely LOVE Melissa’s version. What do you think, is Melissa from Jenny’s block?
