A woman has been labelled ‘a supervillain level genius’ after posting a fake job advertisement on Gumtree to get inspiration for her own job cover letters. 

Nisa Tee, 25, from Glasgow, struggled with writing a cover letter when she was younger and created a false advert for a barista job on Gumtree in order to find ‘the best cover letter’.

She decided to share the idea on Twitter on Wednesday, saying: ‘When I was 19 I had to apply for a job and couldn’t be a***d writing a cover letter.

‘So I made a fake job ad for the job I was applying for on Gumtree and 200 people applied and I picked the best cover letter as my own.’ 

Nisa, who now works as an entertainer, shared an image of her inbox from 2014 after she posted the ad for a Barista/Waitress in Glasgow.  

On the small screenshot, six people can be seen applying for the position and had sent Nisa emails with their CVs. 

She then picked the best one and rephrased it to suit her before removing the advertisement.
