The disappointment of not hearing back from your dream job hurts big time.

"Why can't they just get back to me?", "How long does it take to send an email?"

Enter Lukas Yla; after moving to San Fransisco, Lukas wanted to pursue the tech career he'd always dreamed of.

So to grab the attention of some San Fran tech giants, Lukas put his CV in doughnut boxes, dressed up as a Postmates courier and hand-delivered his sugar-coated resumes directly to the door of his favourite companies.

Apparently, Lukas' jam-filled plan went down very well with employers as he's said to have earned himself 10 interviews from the stunt.

There's no news of Lukas' success post-interview, but hats off to the guy for coming up with the best application process we've ever heard of!
