Grad Student Lands 3 Job Interviews With The Help Of Kim Kardashian

The job market can be super competitive these days, leaving us all to find new ways to stand out from the crowd to potential employers. For instance, Boston University grad student Chris Sumlin included a social media exchange he had with Kim Kardashian West on his resume. And apparently people really seemed to like that as he was then asked to come in on three separate job interviews. 

“Y’all I added that @KimKardashian retweeted my graduate school paper on my resume and I’ve already booked THREE job interviews in less than a week,” the avid Kim K fan tweeted on Wednesday. “This woman’s influence is helping me secure a bag.” 

He wrote in his resume that he was “retweeted by Kim Kardashian West for impressive work in graduate school.” 

It wasn’t long before the tweet went viral, which prompted Kim K to wish him luck on the job hunt. She tweeted back to Chris, “Good luck! I hope you get the jobs!”

It's obvious that he has an impressive resume, and it most likely played a role in landing the interviews. He previously worked at Turner Broadcasting Systems and was an intern at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

But of course, Chris updated his resume to include the newest tweet from Kardashian West. “Oh y’all already know I had to add that @KimKardashian wished me luck on my job search,” Chris wrote with a photo of the new resume copy. “I’m definitely gonna get hired now.” 

Maybe Twitter has more perks than I thought.
