Because it totally just happened to this guy and we're freaking out...
Finally! All those hours spent playing around with those emojis and geo-filters is about to pay off BIG TIME. We're about to tell you a story of courage, determination and absolute boss levels of Snapchat in the face of unemployment. Prepare to be inspired.
Everyone knows that the worst part of coming to the end of your school career is the part where you actually have to go out and get one of those reaaaal job things. Ugh, truly the worst. But this guy? He absolutely smashed it, and what he did was so simple!
This is Graham Allgood from Southern California. He decided to put all his Snapchatty skills to good use... to try and score himself a dream job.
And no, before you say anything - he didn't send his prospective employers selfies of himself with that overused dog filter on his face. You see, a couple of weeks ago we told you that you can create your own Snapchat geo filters, remember?
Well, that's EXACTLY what Graham did. He had his eyes on a job at a fancy media agency so he decided to make them their very own Snapchat filter. After it went live, he uploaded it to Instagram and sent it to the company.
Needless to say, they were OBSESSED with the initiative Graham took to catch their eye and show them his potential. And guess what? Graham is now interning with the company this summer! YAAAAAS!
Best thing we've seen in months! You rock man! Love the design. https://t.co/4JEJxA1zyH— HorizonMediaCareers (@HorizonMCareers) May 3, 2016
So next time your mum tells you to get off Snapchat and start revising for your Biology test, just send her this link and do a little victory dance around your kitchen.
