Man Puts Himself Up For Sale To Get A Job At An Online Marketplace

Aakash Neeraj Mittal "sold" himself on the website Flipkart by using the listing to creatively show off his resume.

Getting your resume in front of the right people while job hunting can be stressful. Sometimes, you have to get creative.

One recent grad in India wanted to work for e-commerce site Flipkart, so he did just that.

The self-titled author and aspiring product manager Aakash Neeraj Mittal "sold" himself on the website by using the listing to creatively show off his resume. He later took the posting down, but one of his classmates uploaded a screen shot of the posting to a forum.

Mittal wrote: "When you are a 6-pointer and competing with best of the best minds of the country, you know how hard it is to land a job. You start doing some crazy and random stuff to stand out from the crowd. ... I didn't get an interview call though, but I hope it will bring a smile on someone's face."

While the post didn't help Mittal get a job at Flipkart or elsewhere, he told BuzzFeed he did land another position.
