Graphic designer Rob Jervis was on the hunt for a new job, and he’d gone with the standard approach first. He emailed his resume to a bunch of different companies and applied for a number of positions. But unfortunately, no one got back to him. So, Rob switched up his game and tried a different angle of attack–a far sweeter approach, you might say: He redesigned his resume into a box and he filled it with homemade Oreo truffles, amaretto ganache and peanut butter cups.
Jervis told Creative Bloq the following about his resume chocolate boxes:
I handed these out to numerous top design and advertising companies in London and in Cambridge. Within an hour or two of receiving these, reputable companies were emailing me with the offer of paid internships and interviews and it was only 2 or 3 that didn’t reply.
Thanks to his innovative design, Rob was able to score an internship at LFH, which then led to a full-time position. Way to think outside the box. Or inside the box. Whatever.
