Nevada City, CA — Local job-seeking Millennial Deborah Williams failed to land a job at a high-profile digital video company Tuesday after she insisted on answering the interviewer’s questions with Snapchat pictures.

“I was doing what I always do,” said Ms. Williams following the 15 minute interview. “Every time that old guy asked me questions, I just looked at my ‘snaps’ for an answer. I get ’em every 10 seconds or so. It’s how I communicate these days. Anyhow, I thought he’d be impressed with my social skills. Apparently not. Whatever.”

Snapchat is a photo messaging application developed by students at Stanford University. Using the application, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. These sent photographs and videos are known as “Snaps”. Users set a time limit for how long recipients can view their Snaps, usually between 1 to 10 seconds.

“There were many things that went sideways during my chat with Debbie,” commented former discrete circuit engineer and now hiring manager Jeth Bosenstadt. “She came dressed like she had been sitting around the house all day. That was the first red flag. The second one was when I asked her about her experiences and she started showing me ‘selfies’ of her friends on her mobile phone. It was completely inappropriate.”

Despite her employment setbacks, Ms. Williams is not giving up and said she plans to double-down on her interview skills.

“That guy was too old for Snapchat anyhow,” continued  a confident Ms. Williams, “I just need to try a different medium. These people who work all day only understand Facebook. So for my next interview, I’m gonna dust-off my [Facebook] profile and use that. The trick is to ‘friend’ your interviewer before the interview. My Tumblr followers told me that trick.”
