Sweet! Man Uses Chocolate Bar Résumé

Desperate jobseeker Nick Begley was sick of getting rejections using his conventional Curriculum Vitae (CV). So he turned it into a chocolate bar label.

He headlined it: ‘Credentials that will satisfy any organisation’s appetite’, and, not wishing to undersell himself, added that he offered ’100 per cent daily value in leadership, creativity and business acumen’.

He wrapped the CV around a Nestlé Crunch bar and it worked.

The MBA student was offered a marketing job with New York-based Sportsvite.

‘I knew I had to stand out from other applications,’ said Mr Begley, 32, from New York state.

His CV went viral after friend Eli Langer posted a photo of the wrapper on to Reddit, where it has acquired more than 3,000 comments.

Mr Begley added to ABC News: ‘People are either going to love it or hate it. My focus was to find an organization that would embrace it because if they weren’t open to that kind of out-of-the-box thinking, that wouldn’t be a company that I would fit in well with anyways.’
