Sometimes we see a job posting for a ninja (or rockstar or guru) and shake our heads a little bit. Nobody really wants to hire an actual ninja, and sometimes we wish job postings stepped back from the hyperbolic ledge.
So, when we saw this insanely creative job application , we had to stand up, applaud, and give serious props to this (real) ninja. We aren't saying this is approach would work for every job seeker out there, but it definitely stands out—and that's the ultimate goal.
What do you think? Should he get an interview?
