This Guy Made The Coolest Resumé To Get A Job At Flipkart

“I wanted to stand out, and so I spent 70 hours making the CV.”

1. This is Aakash Neeraj Mittal, a final-year undergrad at IIT Kharagpur and a published author.

Mittal has written the book It Wasn’t Her Fault, and describes himself as a humanist. In December, Flipkart visited his university and asked students to submit their resumés.

“I knew that it would be difficult for me to land the job, so just to stand out from the crowd, I designed a CV on Photoshop,” he told BuzzFeed.

2. The unique resumé he designed looks like a Flipkart ad, where he was literally ~selling himself~ to the company.

3. It was shared on Quora by his friend Harsh Bajaj.

“I never thought it would go so viral. I desperately wanted this job and maybe that’s the reason I gave 70 hours to make this CV. When I didn’t get an interview call, one of my friends asked me to make it public, and I did. I thought it might inspire someone or bring a smile on someone’s face,” he told BuzzFeed.

“Unfortunately, I never got a call from Flipkart, but I did get another job through the campus,” he told BuzzFeed. “I am really overwhelmed with the response the CV has received. I am getting messages from a lot of people. The resumé seems to have made their day,” he further said.
