Job search: A hip-hop cover letter is one way to stand out from the crowd.
He may not be The Notorious B.I.G. but he wants to work at BIG, the Danish architecture founded by Bjarke Ingels. Étienne Duval, an architect working in the Grand Duchy, has chosen a unique format for a cover letter to get the gig in Copenhagen: a rap video.
Duval was born in Metz, studied in Nancy and Leipzig, and worked in several French and German cities before landing his current job in Luxembourg, he explained in the video. “But now it’s time to leave, Denmark is on my list, I want to work for BIG, I know I’ve got the skills,” he rapped. “I want to meet Bjarke and his hip-hop ego.”
