IIT Candidate Creates Product Listing Resume To Get A Job In Flipkart For Rs. 27,60,200 is Rejected.
During an interview, the candidate usually sells his skills, experience and vision in-front of the interviewer in order to get the job. However, using his imagination, Akash decided to sell himself on flipkart.com
But unfortunately, HR department of Flipkart wasn’t amused and he was rejected.
Just like a product listing, he create his own listing, added his own image, ‘product features‘; ‘customer reviews‘ and a ‘price‘ of Rs 27,60,200.
In that unique resume, Akash said, “When you are a 6-pointer and competing with best of the best minds of the country, you know how hard it is to land a job. You start doing some crazy and random stuff to stand out from the crowd. This is my resume for Flipkart’s APM Profile. I didn’t get an interview call though, but I hope it will bring a smile on someone’s face.”
Remember- On some level, it was inspired by the dare-devil of Nina Mufleh from San Francisco, who created a resume to impress AirBNB . With Nina, AirBNB was indeed impressed, and she was asked for an interview.
It seems Flipkart wasn’t amused with this dare devil act of Akash, and they rejected the application by deleting his listing.
