Making your resume stand out from a pile of papers or a bunch of pixels on a screen is hard as hell. How can people who went to similar schools and worked similar jobs and have similar skills differentiate themselves? By being clever. Like Philippe Dubost. He turned his resume into an Amazon product page. It's brilliant!

Philippe Dubost, a web product manager, refashioned the boring 'ol lines on lines on lines on no margins resume into something that is pretty much universally known: Amazon. He essentially put his resume on Amazon. Reviews come from previous employers, descriptions show off his work experience and skills, adding to cart lets you contact Dubost. He even had some fun and threw in a cute joke about 'Only 1 left in stock' and 'Add to cart for pricing information'. It's great.

If anyone needs a web product manager, go get yourself a Philippe Dubost. [PhilDub via Design Taxi]

There's a reason why boring old line upon line resumes look that way. It's called a standard, and you depart from it at your peril. You hand me a classic resume, I know pretty much where to look for what I want. You give me something like this, chances are real good I'm not going to spend the time deciphering it that you'd like me to, that would be necessary for me to really get a sense of your qualification. Now put a link in your boring old resume, or a URL if it's printed, to this as an example of your creativity and capabilities and you might have something.
