Ingenious Job Applicant Puts Her Resume On A Chocolate Bar

Ingenious Job Applicant Puts Her Resume On A Chocolate Bar

This is too clever to ignore. A hopeful job applicant from Australia tried to sweeten her resume by formatting it as a chocolate bar! She sent the confection to several potential employers, and one of them posted a picture on LinkedIn which received over 16,000 likes (which is a lot for LinkedIn). Moral of the story: everybody likes chocolate... and creativity.

Currently, the program PwC offers only reimburses 1,200 dollars, which sounds relatively insignificant compared to the thousands in debt many graduates have, but the promotion will nevertheless not be ignored.
