Some times it's not enough to talk about your talent but make someone laugh and you might have a chance.

Even Superheroes Need A Little Extra Income As Proved By This Job Application That Arrived At An American Deli From Batman (Below). Chef Andrew Stillwell-Current Of Current Cuisine Said “This App Came Through The Store Recently… Reading This Made My Busy-Ass Day A Lil' Better.”

But In Many Cases, Using A Standard Application Process To Do Something Standard (Like Listing Your Skills And Experience In A Polite And Well Spoken Manner) Just Doesn't Work.
