Designer stands out from other job applicants with a simple box of chocolates
Everyone loves chocolate, right? So what better way to catch an employer's attention than with a lovingly crafted box of chocolates? That's what graphic designer Rob Jervis did.
After spending loads of time sending out countless emails and letters and getting nowhere with them, Rob decided to create something with a little more impact. And it worked! Just an hour after receiving the box of chocolates, branding agency Illumination (formerly known as LFH) offered Rob a paid internship. And that very shortly turned into a full time job.
