With hundreds and thousands of people looking for their dream job, landing one isn't easy. You need to be outstanding. Not just in skills but also the way you send out your resume or job application.

Yeah, because otherwise no one would notice. Sounds crazy, right?

This one guy put in that extra effort because he wanted to do an internship at Cred. A 3D graphic designer, he created a motion video and posted it on LinkedIn to get the attention of the company management.

Avkash Shah, a 21-year-old 3D graphic/motion designer from Mumbai (as his LinkedIn profile shows), wanted to intern at the credit card payments company, Cred. Shah found an interesting way to get the internship he was looking for. He made a 3D video listing out his talent and why he would like to join Cred. He also tagged CRED's founder, Kunal Shah, and Head of Design, Harish Sivaramakrishnan.

"I want to intern at CRED. Here's my application," Avkash Shah wrote while sharing the video on LinkedIn. "I figured that if I was going to apply, I'd make something worth it. It pays to be good," he added.

Take a look here!

Well, he succeeded.

The founder of Cred responded to his post and the head of design offered him an internship. And it all happened over LinkedIn.

"It pays to be good," wrote CRED founder Kunal Shah in the comments section.

"Welcome to the interns club at the CRED Design Mafia!," said Harish Sivaramakrishnan, Head of Design at CRED.

Unless you are living under a rock, you would know Cred's recent ads during IPL went viral for several reasons. Creativity and out-of-the-box thinking being two.

His post is already viral on LinkedIn and Instagram and people are wondering if there's a new trend in applying for jobs. As it stands, the video has got over 66,000 likes and nearly 3,000 comments, and over a million views.

The video also got an appreciation comment from LinkedIn.
