Catching the attention of potential employers could be quite the daunting task unless you have a CV that truly stands out.
This is why when developer Mathieu Passenaud needed a new resume, he decided to take a creative approach and opted to build an entire operating system with the sole intention of using it as a CV.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
To get the project off the ground, Passenaud used an operating system he built for fun during his days as a student and modified it so as to look like an actual resume.
To keep things simple, Passenaud relied mostly on the basic functionalities of the actual operating system, including multithreading, pagination, text console, interruption and exceptions.
In case you’re eager to see how it actually works, you can run the CV OS by downloading and booting this ISO file.
