SELLING OUT

The French web product manager who created a resume in the form of an Amazon page really knows how to sell himself! Philippe Dubost’s super-creative C.V. quickly went viral- and, more importantly, has already gotten about 100 responses from potential jobs. The resume looks exactly like a page on shopping site Amazon, except that the product for sale is Dubost himself. It includes skills and experience in the “Product Details” section and job history information under “Customer Reviews.” Prospective employers can get Dubost’s contact details by adding him to their shopping cart. Of course, there’s only one item in stock…and a web expert like this is sure to go fast.  

What do you think of Dubost’s Amazon resume? Have you ever taken a creative approach to job-searching? What are the most important elements of a good resume?
