Graphic Designer Rob Jervis turned his resume into a box of chocolates because he kept getting rejected by jobs he applied for. He revamped his CV by learning how to make decadent chocolates such as Oreo truffles, peanut butter cups and amaretto ganaches.
He then gave out his chocolate box resume to design and advertising companies in London and Cambridge. Jervis said the majority of companies he applied for got back to him asking for an interview.
His chocolate box stunt was successful at getting him employed. Clearly he is a talented artist if he turned a boring CV into something so deliciously beautiful. It just goes to prove that sometimes it doesn't matter how many awesome things you have on your resume, it's how you present yourself that will set you apart from all the other qualified applicants when it comes to job hunting these days.
