The video, uploaded by user Brenna (@happyboxes.art), shows her with a shocked expression as she stares into the camera saying she “made a mistake.” Brenna claims that during her job hunt, she stumbled across many jobs on LinkedIn from companies that are labeled“confidential” because the company “just doesn’t want you to know their name yet.”

One day, in an “unhinged moment of madness,” she says she created a joke resume and reveals it to her followers in the clip. The resume doesn’t have her name, all of her job occupations are labeled as “confidential,” and her picture has a mustache and sunglasses.
