See The Viral CV That Captured The Attention Of A Big CEO In A Tech Company by MissTechy(f): 12:55pm On Apr 24, 2015
This post was gotten from MissTechy .com

At least 30% of the CVs I have seen have the same pattern – About me, Educational Background….. ( can’t even remember all right now) but I know they do – Nina Mufleh, after months of trying to get in touch with one of the biggest tech companies in America – Airbnb ( Airbnb is an online community marketplace that connects people looking to rent their homes with people who are looking for accommodations.) went unanswered, she decided to create a CV she felt would be creative and clever enough to secure her an interview with Airbnb which she hosted online and themed it according to AirBnB’s website.

To her utmost surprise, the CV she submitted to Airbnb on Tuesday attracted tons of attention both inside and outside of the company – it even caught the attention of Airbnb’s CEO

After going through her Viral CV, It became sure that what made it stand out was the fact that she didn’t follow the conventional style (Listing out job experience – blah blah blah) which Airbnb could have easily gotten from her LinkedIn profile – instead she was able to show that she knew what it took to work in Airbnb, what she could contribute to Airbnb and what she thinks the company should pursue next.

See all screenshots from her resume, to visit her CV website click here

First Page She outlined her basic information – including the reasons why she wants to work for Airbnb




She Gave her own reasons why she felt Airbnb is taking over the world



Pointed out what might hinder them from fully taking over the world



Outlined how Airbnb might position themselves to achieve world dominance



Listed out the SWOT Analysis of Airbnb







Gave reasons why she was passionate about Airbnb






Outlined her area of core competence



Of course! She gave a contact form


……and then she killed it with this – she made sure she referenced all data used in her presentation



I mean, if I own a company and I see this – Why on earth won’t I hire her. So it is no surprise that her cv captured the attention of both the CEO and CMO of Airbnb, to the extent that they even mentioned her on twitter.





Imagine if you and this babe both applied for the same job? Who do you think they would consider based on CV presentation?

As usual save the name MissTechy in your diary - and visit me one of these days
