A Girl Has Jumped Out Of A Plane To Show Just How Much She Wants An Internship At An Australian Startup

Anna Bezuglova jumped out of a plane in the hope of landing a job at Alphatise.

Alphatise, the Australian e-commerce startup which enables consumers to get deals on almost anything, is searching for an intern and it’s dangling a hefty $100,000 package to attract the right candidate.

Unless you’re a whizz kid or happy to go and work in the mines, landing a $100,000 package straight out of uni is an opportunity which doesn’t present itself often and candidates are doing some insane stunts to get the startup’s attention.

One applicant, 19-year-old Anna Bezuglova, is studying finance and economics at Sydney University, she’s terrified of heights but for this job she’s “willing to take the plunge”. Literally. She jumped out of a plane for her application video.

“Alphatise is a source of inspiration for me, and a company that would be a dream of mine to be a part of for the 12 months (or hopefully longer!),” she wrote in her application.

Here’s the video.

The successful applicant will be paid a $50,000 salary, be allocated $50,000 in stock options and be given a company car, laptop and a phone.

Winners will be judged on the best video and most votes.
