Kimberly Nguyen, a copywriter a online services, explained she accidentally stumbled across the listing online.

And found her company was advertising her job for up to $32,000 (£26k) to $90,000 (£75k) more than her current salary.

Furious, the 25-year-old decided to get her own back on the company – by simply applying for the job.

Her viral tweet detailed her revenge has been viewed more than 12 million times as people her love how she got her own back.

Kimberly – who did not name the company – said the pay inequity has been an issue in the firm.

“I have told my managers multiple times that I know I’m being underpaid,” she wrote.

“I have gotten the run-around, and they know they can do this right now in a tough labour market.”

“I’ve been asking for a raise for months and they’re out here flaunting [that] they’re willing to pay a new person at least $32k more than me??? For the same job??” she asked.

After slyly applying for the job – she also shared the job listing in a company group chat, seemingly innocently asking she was allowed to submit an application.

And then the next day she said there was an “emergency meeting” at the firm.

The posting was taken down – but the company then shared it in a separate job ad.

She claims she was then told “nobody is getting a raise” and the employees were threatened with “possible lay-offs”.

Kimberly, from New York City, said she felt “disrespected” by the job listing – and added that no one in the firm even bothered to respond to her application.

So after shaming her boss and employer on Twitter, she later announced that she is looking for a new job.

Twitter users praised her for her revenge – and sticking to her guns by leaving the firm.

“I’m joining your fan club! That was a boss move!!” one said.

And screenshot of her tweet was shared on the Reddit page Anti-Work.

Furious users called her company’s job posting a “slap in the face”.

Kimberly said: “I did not expect it to resonate with so many of you. I’m really glad a dialogue is being opened.

“I’m glad companies are feeling more pressure, but nobody wins if we just all get each other fired.”
