A job seeker has turned his domain into an Amazon product page, complete with advertisements and reviews.
Job seeker Philippe Dubost has become an Internet sensation after creating a unique and a creative resume.
Dubost, a web product manager who wants to work for Amazon, turned his domain, phildub.com, into an Amazon product page, complete with advertisements and reviews.
He rewrote the text to read like a resume. It’s full of links to email him and to view his LinkedIn profile.
Amazon HR can even put him in its cart. For product dimensions, Dubot put his height. He apparently comes in three languages, speaking English, French and Spanish, and can be “shipped all over the world.”
Dubost looks good on paper. He runs marathons in three hours and twenty-two minutes, he has a bachelors in Computer Science from the University of Nice, and he formally worked for advertising company, MediaMind.
Below is a screenshot of the site Dubost made. It has been tweeted around by over 300 Finance publications. You can check out the full resume here.
