So, Carrot Creative, a social media agency, is hiring a community manager. The job ad said “boring cover letters are not necessary.”
So Torrey Taralli made a video cover letter using 300 carrots to spell out his cover letter and qualifications. “My hands were orange at the end,” he says in the video description.
It’s clever, we think (though you can judge for yourself below) but it turns out that it’s hard to write long sentences with carrots. (Who knew?) At the end of the video we just wanted to know more about Taralli’s qualifications….though perhaps the hiring managers at Carrot will be curious enough to check Taralli out.
One thing’s for sure: it’s not a boring cover letter.
