A Twitter user recently shared a creative way to get an employer’s attention. A man from Bengaluru dressed up as a Zomato delivery executive, delivered his resume in a box of pastry to startups in the city.
Peak Bengaluru Moment
A Twitter user came up with an innovative idea to get a job. A man named Aman Khandelwal decided to catch the employer’s attention by dressing up as a Zomato delivery executive. He delivered his resume in a box of pastries to several startups in Bengaluru.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Aman shared images of himself dressed up as a delivery boy and a pastry box with a message that read, “Most of the resumes end up in the trash. But mine in your belly.” In the caption, he wrote, “Dressed as a @zomato delivery boy I delivered my resume in a box of pastry. Delivered it to a bunch of startups in Bengaluru. Is this a @peakbengaluru moment?”

Is it just me who finds this absolutely cringe and crazy? Is it that easy to masquerade as a delivery boy from Zomato/Swiggy? Imagine the safety implications here.

As @warikoo says, the world doesn't need another template, it needs a rebel.

1) Full marks for effort but you impersonated an organization's employee. Not very ethical.
2) You copied a very old trick to project your uniqueness. Isnt it ironic?
3) If you have the right skill set and the will to stay persistent, people will follow you.

All those "non tax paying, parent-dependent ADULTS"- strugglers who's criticizing him for copying the act or the way of act.. you peeps may have great advantages or hardworking caretakers in your lives.. stop shaming others for their struggles and their ways to keep going. ✌️

A) This is more than inspired by another trend that happened in the West.
B) If I was a recruiter, I WOULD NEVER HIRE YOU! This, while creative, is an invasion of privacy, and pretty creepy. So unless it was delivered at the office I would be extremely concerned as a recruiter.

It probably will, bcz after eating, they might need something to wipe off cake remainings on their hands and that piece of paper you sticked to it, might be used 🙂.
