The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is holding a “resume drop” in Washington on Friday for Democrats interested in campaign jobs with the committee.

But their counterparts over at the National Republican Campaign Committee have caught wind of the event and plan to have a little bit of fun with it, The Daily Caller has learned.

An official at the NRCC tells TheDC that they plan to crash the job fair on Friday by sending over “a bunch” of resumes from “The Real Julia,” a fictional unemployed girl who hasn’t been able to get a job in the Obama economy.

It’s a play off of President Obama’s re-election campaign’s “Life of Julia” fictional storybook ad that showed “how President Obama’s policies help one woman over her lifetime.”

“I am currently unemployed due to the poor economy and crushing burden of the Obama Administration and would like an opportunity to gain employment through your organization,” the fictional girl says in the NRCC cover letter.

The official said the NRCC plans to “document the delivery” of these resumes.

The DCCC’s “resume drop” is planned for Friday afternoon at the party’s headquarters in Washington.

“Do you have experience working on campaigns?” the committee asked in a posting for the event. “Do you want to help Congressional hopefuls get elected? The DCCC is looking for campaign managers, finance directors, and finance support staff for the 2014 Congressional election cycle and could use you!”
