Crystal's cookies make perfect delivery platform for CV and job application
Crystal Nunn proves that a little extra thought in your job application can land you your dream design job.
Crystal Nunn, determined to bag a junior designer opening at We Are Social, made some cookies and sent them to the agency. And she got the job.
Alright, it wasn't that simple. Crystal did more than just a little baking. You see, it's not just about doing something quirky. Quirky may get you noticed but it won't necessarily get you an interview. Crystal put extreme thought, care, detail and hard-work into this.
Crystal spent two weeks developing her vegan cookie recipe using Beyond Dark chocolate as the main ingredient (probably because it is delicious but also because James Nester, Creative Director at We Are Social, is the Co-Founder of Beyond Dark). She then created the "Beyond Ideas" packaging for her cookies.
