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.”

Okay, So Maybe You Don't Want To Work In A Deli. 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. It's The People Who Are Willing To Subvert Expectations And Make People Laugh That Get Noticed. And This Is Probably More True In The Creative Industries Than Anywhere Else.
