Want to work at McDonald's? If you're a tech savvy smartphone user, applying just got a whole lot easier.

Potential employees can now digitally try on the McDonald's uniform in a Snapchat filter while applying to the fast food chain.

The golden arches chain in Australia has partnered with the wildly popular app to allow new recruits to make a 10-second video clip to procure a job application, according to the Chicago Tribune.


The “Snaplication” can then be submitted to the McDonald’s Snapchat account. The pictures or videos will only be available for 10 seconds before they vanish, so it's important to make a good impression fast.

From there, McDonald’s-- or Macca’s as Australians call it-- will then send back a direct link to the application and digital careers page.

"For most young people who apply for a role with Macca's, this is their first entry into the workforce. As such, their personality, positive attitude and enthusiasm are characteristics that are focused on and traits that this tech innovation captures in a simple, yet effective manner," McDonald's said in a statement.


McDonald’s Down Under calls itself the biggest employer of millennials in the country. The company says the partnership with Snapchat is an important way to reach out to the thousands of young people who are avid Snapchat users.

The chain has not confirmed whether it plans to roll out a similar platform in the U.S.
