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.
F**k it, we'll do it live!

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. Nice touches include the “Frequently Bought Together” suggestions, the inability to add him to your Wedding Registry (try clicking it) and that the “Add to Cart” button takes you to a contact form. Take a look at his site via the link below and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
