Is this the most innovative resume ever?
A Web product manager is receiving praise for his Amazon.com look-alike resume, complete with starred ratings and a shopping cart.
If you've ever wondered how to capture an employer's attention, you might want to take a look at what some are calling the most clever resume ever: a C.V. that's designed to appear like an Amazon (AMZN) product listing.
French Web product manager Philippe Dubost created a resume that's a near match to Amazon's appearance, although the categories and titles are changed to reflect Dubost's skills and accomplishments. Potential employers are told there's "only 1 left in stock -- order soon."
Product dimensions? The site lists Dubost's height, which is 186 centimeters (over 6 feet tall). For shipping, the product "is available for shipping anywhere in the world!" He's also trilingual and has a marathon time of 3 hours and 22 minutes.
While his customer reviews are overwhelmingly positive (121 five-star rankings), they also include 37 one-star ratings. What's the reason for that? "Lots of ex-girlfriends," he wrote on Twitter.
Like another employment bid that went viral earlier this month, Dubost is taking a chance that a bit of creativity will pay off with a job offer.
And that appears to be the case: He's received 100 emails from potential employers, according to the U.K.'s Independent.
"I wanted to do something fun. Resumes are not fun. They're not fun to write, not fun to read," Dubost told the publication, explaining his thinking in creating the site. He added that he picked Amazon to copy because he's a "pathological Amazon addict."
