Amazon resumes may be the new LinkedIn! In this trying economy, many are struggling to find jobs and the means to support themselves. So, people are getting creative! They are using computers for more than just writing out resumes on Microsoft Word but actually taking to media-outlets to shine light on their expertises.
One of these computer creative job seekers is Philippe Dubost. Dubost is a web product manager currently located in Paris, looking for travel for his next position. Or so his amazon page/resume says.
His savy page lists off his skills in addition to making himself look wanted by posting "Only 1 left in stock - Order soon".
Dubost has replicated his resume to every last aspect of an Amazon page including the ads.
Clever, Dubost. Very clever!
His resume has received so much traffic that he had to switch to hosting services.
Whoever hires this creative web programmer will certainly be in for a technological treat! Just make sure that when you order him, you give him breathable packaging.
