Nicholas Cage can be thanked for potentially earning Canadian Vanessa Hojda two jobs.

The York University student, 20, became an Internet sensation in just a few days after she mistakenly attached a photo of Cage instead of her resume to a job application, then posting a screenshot of the email to her Tumblr.

After Gawker and everyone else picked up the story, Hodja scored more than 800 new Tumblr followers and, according to the Washington Post, a few job offers.

"I actually got some job offers saying, 'Hey, would you be interested in being a social media rep?' " Hojda told The Toronto Star.

The self-described "unironic" Cage fan learned a useful message: carefully name your files.

Hojda deleted the picture of the maniacally grinning star and renamed her resume file "ThisIsYourResumeThisIsNotAPictureOfNicolasCage.doc," though she said that was only temporary.

Her fleeting fame, however, might last longer than she thought, as her name has become certifiably Google-able.

"Now I Google my name and it comes up as a Washington Post aticle," Hojda told the Star.
