A fresh graduate of Boston University scored interviews with three companies—all thanks to his idol, television personality Kim Kardashian.
Chris Sumlin shared part of his resume on Twitter Wednesday, which he sent to potential employers. Having indicated that he has worked with big media outlets such as USA Today and Fox, it would seem that he has a big chance to impress companies.
However, one line of his accomplishments stood out from the rest: “Retweeted by Kim Kardashian West for impressive work in graduate school.”
Because of that particular achievement, Sumlin said Kardashian helped him bag three job interviews in less than a week. “This woman’s influence is helping me secure a bag,” he said.
Not only did he score interviews, Sumlin got famous on social media. His post now has 500 retweets and 5,000 likes, as of this writing.https://twitter.com/ChrisSumlin/status/1064950673354055681
And it appears that luck was on Sumlin’s side, as Kardashian retweeted Sumlin again, this time wishing him success with his interviews.https://twitter.com/KimKardashian/status/1064963588094275584
After getting the good luck he needed, Sumlin updated his resume to mention that Kardashian mentioned him once again. “I’m definitely gonna get hired now,” he said with confidence.https://twitter.com/ChrisSumlin/status/1065003081279037440
Other netizens too showered him with good-luck messages, such as one named kyle g. (@kyleg182). He said that although Kardashian noticed Sumlin, he told him, “[D]on’t discount the other bullets you have on that sheet.”https://twitter.com/kyleg182/status/1064964469334384640
Megan Torok (@MeganTorok) has a feeling that Sumlin will get multiple offers.
And kkben (@interestingtuna) said that if that was her resume, she would have listed Kardashian as a character reference.
Good luck on that job hunting, Chris!
