How You Get Hired: Graphic Designer Turns Resume Into a Box of Chocolates


What do you do when you've emailed your resume to 27394 companies and haven't heard a peep from a single one? You take a different approach and turn that lifeless PDF attachment into a box of chocolates. After applying for countless positions and getting almost no response, graphic designer Rob Jervis redesigned his resume into a box with homemade oreo truffles, amaretto ganache and peanut butter cups.

"I handed these out to numerous top design and advertising companies in London and in Cambridge. Within an hour or two of receiving these, reputable companies were emailing me with the offer of paid internships and interviews and it was only 2 or 3 that didn't reply," Jervis told Creative Bloq.


He landed his dream internship at LFH, which eventually led to a full-time position. Lesson learned? There are a lot of inedible resumes out there, so make yours tasty.
