Like most recent graduates from a college or university, design student Brennan Gleason was looking for a job that might give him a reasonable salary and a few days off every now and again (which, sadly, is what all job-seekers are searching for nowadays).
But unlike most people pounding the pavement, Gleason decided to send out his resume by packaging it on a 4-pack of his home-brewed blonde ale and calling it Resum-Ale (it also comes with a QR code on the bottle cap which leads to his full resume).
And yes, Gleason did ultimately get a job thanks to his resume (at Techtone, a digital brand marketing agency whose HR dept. obviously liked beer).
But while we may all be impressed with Gleason’s job-search savvy, it might be best to remember that he was in the design field and oddball resumes aren’t completely out of the norm, they kind of have to be in order to get noticed. But sending in a beer-themed resume to say, an accounting office or for a teaching position, will probably keep you out on the street longer than you like. ..Although, I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for a government position.
Yeah, the IRS would probably love a 4-pack resume.
