When it comes to job hunting, your first shot at making a good impression is through your curriculum vitae (CV). Landing your dream job requires putting in the extra effort, and that's what this college student did.

Emily Vu (@emvutweets), currently a senior student at the University of California, Irvine, took to Twitter to share how she designed her CV specifically for her dream job and it is honestly a stroke of ~genius~. One of the jobs she's eyeing is a Product Manager (PM) position over at music streaming platform Spotify, and to make the best first impression, she decided to design her CV to emulate the streaming platform.

Aside from the actual content of the CV, what's impressive with Emily's is that, from the fonts to the color scheme, her CV looks like you just opened a desktop version of Spotify. She even used the app's 'Like' button as the bullet points to further show how meticulously crafted her CV is.

To take it a step further, Emily posted her Spotify-themed CV on Twitter and tagged the platform's account. Her tweet has now garnered almost 300,000 likes and almost 20,000 retweets as of writing! What's even more impressive is that it caught the attention of someone working at Spotify, who sent her a link to a job opening (the very same job she's eyeing!) and invited her to apply. So cool!
