Chocolate Bar Resume: Guy Gets Creative For Job
If you look around the web on any given day, you’ll probably find several instances of people being creative. Everyone wants to do something that hasn’t been done before; as an artist, I can attest that it isn’t always easy to achieve. But one way to get the creativity flowing is to direct it someplace it usually isn’t found…like a resume.
Rather than send out a boring, dry, plain old resume that looks like every other in a thick stack, some people are thinking outside the box to create something that will jump out at a potential employer. As more and more stories pour in through the wickedly slow economy of graduates being unable to land a job within their field, it’s especially important to stand out from the crowd.
That’s where things like chocolate bars and web pages come in. A Reddit user posted a photo of his buddy’s resume, which happens to be printed on a candy wrapper, and it quickly went viral. Reportedly, he got the job.
There’s also this guy, who created a resume that looks just like an Amazon product page.
