A talented young singer on the hunt for a job decided to put her side-gig skills to good use - and in turn gained herself some online fame.
Page Kemna, 24, of Denver is on her way to exciting new job opportunities after her creative singing cover letter, entitled 'Hire Me', gained hundreds of thousands of views on LinkedIn.
'Feeling down about the job search? Me too,' Page wrote in the caption for the clip. 'All I have been doing lately is tweaking my resumes and cover letters for employers that probably won't even glance at them for more than like 30 seconds. And trust me, I totally get it.'
Singing her way to employment: Page Kemna, from Denver, has gone viral with her singing cover letter
The clip, which sees Page run through her list of skills to a catchy tune, has been viewed more than 800,000 times on LinkedIn
She continued: 'Resumes can be remarkably dull. But, I am not. So, let me liven things up just a little bit.'
The video begins with Page looking interview-ready in a blue suit and blouse sitting down in front of a keyboard, directing her attention at the camera.
'Hi, my name is Page. I just want to thank you so much for considering me for this interview,' she says, pausing for effect.
'But I'm going to take the reins on this one because interviews are boring and resumes are boring and this is fun - even though my resume is super impressive,' she adds before whispering: 'It's not that impressive.'
At that point the young lady launches into song, singing: 'I have this crazy idea. Just let me know if you agree that this song is a stretch but I'm kind of a catch and there's something in me you might see. Something that benefits your company.'
With her impressive pipes, she goes on to poke fun at companies who promise to 'get right back to you,' and insists that she 'isn't done trying' to make companies consider her because 'persistence is my specialty.'
Page, whose LinkedIn says she is currently a Design Associate at West Elm, claims that she will 'go the extra mile', has 'leadership skills' and is 'hungry for a challenge', before she asks: 'What are you waiting for? Hire me!'
Other talents: Page, whose LinkedIn page says she is a Design Associate at West Elm, is an avid singer and multi-instrumentalist
Top to bottom: She pokes fun at companies who promise to 'get right back to you,' adding that she won't give up since 'persistence is my specialty'
Lovely voice: She touts her method as 'an opportunity to show someone who you are'
'I know this strategy might seem a bit bizarre, but what an opportunity to show someone who you are,' she says.
For her 'grand finale', Page looks into the camera and sings: 'I hope you enjoy, or better yet employ, this girl and her strong but silly theme. Thank you and I hope you consider me.'
The video has been viewed a whopping 800,000 times on LinkedIn, and attracted more than 1,400 comments, with Page revealing to DailyMail.com that, while she hasn't landed on the perfect job just yet, she has had 'lots of cool opportunities' as a result of the video, and is now busy 'sifting through them'.
But it may not be in the career field she had originally intended; indeed dozens of people suggested that Page's talents would be wasted on a 'corporate 9 to 5', insisting that she should pursue a career in the music and entertainment industry instead.
'Great voice, [make] more videos!' one person requested, before suggesting she should 'join Broadway'.
Others hastened to actually offer her a job, with one man writing: 'I own 3 businesses and I've got to say that your resume is on the top of my pile. You've got creativity and style.'
Looking ahead: Page has since claimed that she has already received a number of interesting job offers
Up for debate: Some professionals on LinkedIn loved her strategy, while others thought it was less than professional
Another prospective employer chimed in: 'I think this is brilliant. The amount of work that goes in to even writing a song, let alone nailing it in one sitting, should show an employer someone who is not only creative, but focused and able to execute. Hired.'
Others simply offered up their support, sharing positive thoughts with Page and wishing her luck in her continued search.
'That was genius! I wish my company was bigger, because I'd roll the dice on you,' one person commented on Page's video.
'Best of luck in your future endeavors! You should document your journey through video. I'm sure there are others just like you out there that will find inspiration in what you're doing!'
However some recruitment professionals and career consultants flocked to the comments section to offer their opinions about whether unemployed people should have to go to such extreme lengths in order to be in with a chance of getting an interview.
'Candidates should not have to resort to extra "tap and dance" routines to get noticed,' wrote one professional, while another countered: 'I suspect that many people will give you a lot of credit for being creative and putting yourself out there.'
That certainly does seem to be the case as Page later provided an update in the comments on YouTube - and one in another song - saying that she has 'lots of cool opportunities I get to sift through now.'
