Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
This statement couldn’t be any more true for a young woman by the name of Nina Mufleh, who after relocating to San Francisco from Jordan, has been trying for the past year to get a job at Airbnb.
She tried emailing and applying to job listings for the company to no avail, and decided to ignore her friends and family telling her to move on to another company as she had tried it all with Airbnb. She realized she had not tried it all and decided to take a more unconventional approach to grabbing the company’s attention.
She modeled her resume to look like that of an Airbnb host’s profile, and instead of providing typical information, such as job experience, she instead used her platform to speak on her extensive knowledge of the travel industry (she worked in Jordan for the Queen for 3 years…amazing) and her suggestions for how to improve the company’s presence in the Middle East.
Here are some snapshots of her “resume”…
Almost automatically, she heard back from top executives at the company, who were impressed with her intelligence and creativity and wanted to speak with her about working with them.
She is currently in the process of speaking with them now. Always remember that nothing can stand in the way of your dreams and that with your unique skill set and a little perseverance, anything is possible.
