Make Your Own Opportunity

Was reading A Cup of Jo this morning and saw a link to this job posting for Penquin Press. And what caught my eye was not only the creative way they went about drumming up applicants but also the way someone got their attention for a job. Matthew Young sent in the (above) mocked up book he designed as a way to get in the door and tell them they should hire him to design their book covers. And they did. And now he does. Love it.
