A screen shot of the Amazon-like resume.   (

(Newser) – Philippe Dubost is a "web product manager" looking for a job, and it's a safe bet he won't be looking long. Dubost posted a resume that looks exactly, exactly, like an Amazon product page. ("Only 1 left in stock—order soon.") Here's a sample of the high praise his gone-viral resume is receiving:

  • It's "a pitch-perfect pastiche," writes Chris Taylor at Mashable. "Suggesting that you add the applicant to your shopping cart to see his price is such a clever way of asking to be hired, we're amazed no one thought of it before."
  • "It's brilliant!" writes Casey Chan at Gizmodo.
  • Sure it's only a resume, but "the guy is a web product manager, and his resume is per se a wildly successful web product," writes Will Oremus at Slate. "I look forward to finding out who snaps him up."
  • Dubost, who lives in Paris but is happy to relocate, promises to provide updates on the search at his Twitter feed.
