A Canadian woman's emailed job application has gone viral after she accidentally attached an image of a wild-eyed Nicolas Cage grinning maniacally instead of her resume.

Vanessa Hojda, 20, was inquiring about an administrative assistant job at York University when she accidentally uploaded an image of the Oscar winner instead of her resume and cover letter, Gizmodo reports.

The self-described "weirdo" said she made the mistake because the image had a very similar file name to the documents she intended to attach.

"I accidentally sent my potential future boss a picture of Nic Cage rather than my cover letter+resume, which was a zip file titled with a bunch of numbers like the jpg i accidentally attached oh my God," Ms Hojda wrote on her blog.

It is unclear whether she succeeded in securing an interview but her application has now been viewed by thousands online.
