In the now-viral LinkedIn post, Cohen shared that he cooked chicken in a coffee machine with butter and garlic. "I'm traveling for work and instead of eating a fancy dinner out, I’ve decided to cook a cheaper meal in the hotel room. Even though the hotel room didn’t have a kitchen, I managed to use the coffee machine to cook chicken with butter and garlic," Alexander Cohen wrote on LinkedIn.

He also added that he cooked a meal to save his company some expenses. "Although my company allows me to expense dinner while traveling, I wanted to save money because I know that every dollar counts on the P&L," he added.

The man even linked it to getting a promotion and wrote, "It's the little things that get you promoted." Cohen even posted a screenshot of his now-viral LinkedIn post on Twitter with the caption, "This is my best LinkedIn post to date. "
