Although Facebook refused him his pre-paid visa, he was quickly inundated with job offers from digital security firms. So it's a happy ending for Khalil.
This is reminiscent of many offbeat stories of those acquiring employment through unconventional methods. One which springs to mind is the story of Alec Brownstein, who landed a job at a creative advertising agency by advertising himself creatively using Google Adwords. He brought the names of creative directors at top agencies all over New York so that when they inevitably googled themselves, his personalised message was at the top of the results. This message poked fun at their self-Googling and urged them to look over his portfolio. It eventually landed him just the job he had been looking for after hearing back from all but one of the creative directors he has "contacted". The whole exercise cost him just under six dollars.
There are many unconventional ways to land your dream job, but they all have one thing in common: You have to put yourself out there for the world to see, whether you do it by breaking the privacy of one of the most important CEO's of our generation, or by poking gentle fun at the vanity of your own industry's top dogs.
