Resume Bar: Candy Bar Resume Could Be The Best Job-Getting Idea Ever

The resume bar could be the cleverest means ever used to garner new employment. It’s a brutal job market out there, and one man decided to make himself stand out from the crowd in a very sweet way. The candy bar resume went viral after being posted on Reddit on Thursday.

In a possibly ingenious move, Nick Begley had 12 crunch bar resumes made to get the attention of possible employers. The entire wrapper of the resume bar appears to be used to share information about Nick and his credentials. The man on the receiving end of the candy bar resume must have a sense of humor and be a chocolate lover — Nick got the job.

The UP code on the wrapper is reportedly not a valid register number but Nick’s birthday. The creative job applicant was reportedly born on November 30, 1980 if the keen eye of Reddit users are deciphering the resume bar accurately.

Nick supposedly used the candy bar resume to land a marketing job at Sportsvite, a New York City-based company, The Blaze notes. An excerpt from the internet thread about the company reads:

“Sportsvite is an online community for adult recreation athletes, allowing them to meet their fellow sports enthusiasts in their area and providing them with a platform to manage their rec sports teams.”

The ingredients portion of the resume bar is perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the unconventional job application approach. Nick used the space to note his skills in marketing, creative services management, social media marketing, and a host of other talents which would likely appeal to a the company.

What’s the most creative thing you have ever done to get hired for a new job?
