Hilariously implemented, this 'Gettingjobbed' Tumblr site is definitely worth a look.

Featuring two infuriated individuals who are tired of having no luck on their job search, this blog presents the numerous prank emails the two send out to potential employers. Replying to job posts with false and preposterous details about their own lives, the two get pleasant (and hilarious) surprises as they attained more interview opportunities than ever imagined.

Implications - I guess that goes to show the power of originality and creativity in the job finding game! These job app pranks are a great way to stand out from the crowd of applicants whose application answers are all some variety of the same few generic, overused phrases. Gettingjobbed shows that a little humor and out-of-the-box thinking can go a long way.
