Nowadays, people are looking for jobs heavily. Here is a easier way to get your job.
Making a CV is probably the most boring part of the applying for a job, but a necessary evil nevertheless, but even that can become a fun task if you have the creative flair.
That’s exactly what happened when an IIT Kharagpur student recently applied for a product management vacancy at Indian e-commerce Flipkart.
The IIT graduate, Aakash Neeraj Mittal, tried a novel way of getting his foot in the door for the Flipkart job by trying to sell himself on the e-commerce website!
At times, you just can’t prove yourself enough – you need to find newer and cleverer ways to prove that you ARE the one for the job.
- Aakash Neeraj Mittal is an alumni of Indian Institute of Technology- Kharagpur, a KGPian as the students of the institute are popularly called.
- The graduate, who is also the author of ‘It wasn’t her fault’, was reportedly very keen on getting a job at Flipkart, the e-commerce giant worth billions of dollars.
- But instead of dropping a resume like other normal candidates, what he did was quite unbelievable and extremely hilarious.
- He put himself on sale on the website!
In the ad, he pointed to the designation he was hoping to get – Product Manager. Very ambitious, Aakash.
With his detailed resume on Flipkart, Mittal wrote, “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.”
