Philippe Dubost's Amaz'ing Resume

Philippe Dubost's Amaz'ing Resume

Very cool!  You have to check out Philippe Dubost’s (phildub) resume site.  Completely designed to emulate an Amazon product page, down to the smallest details.  Many of the links work nicely, taking you to a contact form or details on his LinkedIN profile page.  Things like his Product Dimensions, Only 1 Available, Star ratings and frustration-free packaging from France.  Even a Google Ad, similar to the ads on actual Amazon pages.

Certainly creative, I wondered if this should be considered an infographic resume.  I ended up convincing myself that “Yes” I do consider it to be infographic because it visualizes Philippe’s information in a way that is recognizable and easier to read and understand to the audience.  Star Ratings, key features, product photos and recommendations.  The visuals do bring meaning to the information, even though it’s done in a fun and amusing way.  It doesn’t have to be a chart of numerical data to be infographic.

What do you think?

I had to click on the link 3 times, before I realized I was not being redirected to buy a book from Amazon. As clever as it is, I wonder how many are as "stupid" about it as I was.

After speaking with Philippe this morning, as a career consultant, I shared with him how to think through the criteria through which he should evaluate the opportunities that are coming his way, how to tackle compensation inquiries, and the most effective mentoring strategy for someone in an evolving high tech world. I wish Philippe immense success. He is not just an online resume sensation but he has an impressive greater vision for his career - one that I wish my clients would believe in and take a risk towards #risk-taking #effort - Melissa Llarena of Career Outcomes Matter www.careeroutcomesmatter.com

I love this article! I'm still surprised about how quickly his CV went viral. So crazy! We actually spoke to him and managed to interview him over the weekend. You can read the full interview for FREE here: http://bit.ly/WpK0qx

I like the way he is presenting his resume, but why not he used a new design rather than hijacking the design of amazon.com. If he is very good in presenting so why not he created his own design for the resume.
