Woman Puts Herself and Her Resume on eBay

Woman Puts Herself and Her Resume on eBay

by Stephen BrownJanuary 28, 2013

Hoping to start a bidding war, a woman has launched a resume for herself on eBay that warns “Hurry, I will go fast.”

The execution, on behalf of a laboratory technician named Sonya Williams, gives employers until Feb. 4 to make their decision. The offer also promises “no defects or wear and tear” and one-day shipping from Lansing, Mich.

It’s not clear whether Williams’ resume was inspired by that of Philippe Dubost, a web product manager whose Amazon-esque resume we dubbed the “best online resume ever.” However, Williams’ execution pales in comparison if only for the low-quality head shot (what’s up with those red eyes?) and for merely posting her traditional resume (with her contact info blotted out) under the “description” field.

Still, you’ve got to give Williams points for trying, even if this isn’t quite a five-star effort.
