Elski Felson wants a job at Snapchat, but instead of submitting a traditional resume, he created one using the app.

“Personally, I hate paper resumes,” he says in the video. “I don’t think a piece of paper can encapsulate anybody. So I decided to make you a ‘My Story.'”

He then goes through the requirements (presumably for this Community Support Specialistposition) line by line to prove his worth.

Watch him demonstrate that he is and expert spreadsheet wizard, multi-tasker and ugly selfie sender among the other qualifications listed on the page.

“I’ve been searching for a professional job for almost 8 months now. I’m totally fed up with the system,” he writes on Reddit. “Applying online over and over and hearing nothing back… it’s a disheartening crapshoot.”

Well hopefully Snapchat will catch wind of the video and at least grant him an interview for putting in all the extra effort.
