Is Philippe Dubost's online Amazon resume the best CV ever?

  • @MsEllenEJones

With high unemployment rates now a global problem, gimmicky attempts to get noticed in the job market are becoming more common. Some are annoying, some seem irrelevant, but it's hard to argue that the Amazon-aping website of Philipe Dubost hasn't been a success.

As well as listing the usual educational and professional achievements, Dubost has proved his talents as a Web Product Manager by creating a very convincing take-off of the amazon.com, listing himself as a product.

His site has gone viral and he has started recording feedback on his twitter timeline. No word yet on whether he's been hired, but surely it can't be long?
