New Delhi: We all have seen job seekers trying out unique ways to grab the attention of employers. Be it fancy cold emails to leave endless messages on LinkedIn, interested people come up with unusual ways to get the job done. But a unique way to get the dream job is now garnering praise on Twitter. Netizens are delighted with the efforts of a man named Aman Khandelwal, who dressed up as a Zomato delivery partner and delivered his resume to startups in Bengaluru in a box of pastries. Very unique, isn’t it?

“Most resumes end up in the trash. But mine is in your stomach,” read the message from his resume in a box of pastries. Khandelwal is looking for a Management Trainee job in a Bengaluru-based startup. (Also Read: PNB Raises Interest Rates On Fixed Deposits From July 4: Details Here)

Several Twitter users shared their concerns regarding workplace safety with Khandelwal’s unconventional approach to getting the job done. A Twitter user said, “Is it just me who finds this absolutely ludicrous and crazy? Is it so easy to pretend to be Zomato/Swiggy’s delivery boy? Imagine the security implications here.”

“Bhai kuch bhi kar lena startup join mat karna. Sala dream unka hota hai le tumhari lete hain apne dream ko pura karne ke liye aur jaise hi kuch bana firr aapko tata bye bye,” another Twitter users said.

“They delivered in startups, so there is not that much security anyway. One can easily walk in even in casuals,” said another user.

Zomato is yet to comment on the incident. However, other companies are trying to capitalize on the phenomenon with cheeky replies. For example, Dunzo said, this sweet gesture has definitely raised the bar! Best wishes for your application 🙂 PS: We also enjoy Khaman Dhokla.”
