This Resume Bar is Why You Don’t Have a Job

Stop shouting “OH MY GOD I HAD THAT EXACT SAME IDEA!” at the screen for just a minute and peep this story:

Redditor elilanger‘s buddy Nick Begley was looking for a job. No surprise there. The exciting part comes in at his resume. It wasn’t pink (and scented!), it didn’t begin with his name in size 22 font, double bold and underlined. Instead, it was printed and wrapped around — wait for it — a real-live, actual, edible Crunch candy bar. The delicious kind! His qualifications, skills, etc, etc we’re printed where the boring nutritional facts usually go.

And you know what? He got the job.

Aziza Sullivan has always enjoyed three things in excess: food, writing, and sleeping. While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
