Brilliant: This guy turned his resume into an ‘Amaz-ing’ Amazon product page

For many careers the resume is now just a formality, while for some businesses, it’s still the only proper way to communicate your interest. Either way, the default resume has been done to death, and that’s why wild experiments in this space catch our attention.

Typical resumes follow a standard structure: plain white background, contact details, objective, experience, etc. This resume, however, created by Web product manager Philippe Dubost, packs a surprising deviation, taking on the form of an Amazon product page.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

As shown below, Dubost’s online resume, which is also his personal website, presents him as a shoppable item. Of course, he ships free (and includes frustration-free breathable packaging!), but there’s only one Dubost left in stock, so employers should order soon.
