When you have hundreds of people vying for a coveted job in a top company, the need to stand and be notice is intense.
Here’s a select list of 5 people who, in a bid to get noticed and hired by Google, Amazon, Instagram, Snapchat and AirBnB, went out of their way, and created these insanely creative or offbeat resumes, tailor made for the company they were applying for.
You’ve been dreaming of finally leaving your corporate cubicle forever. Maybe it’s because you think your work is boring and repetitive. Maybe it’s because your boss is an prick. Or maybe it’s because you’re truly passionate about something, and are willing to forego the comforts and perks of a normal job to follow your dreams.
We bring you 10 people who did leave their corporate cubicles. Their motives were different – some have set up businesses, others have travelled, yet some others have tried to give back to society. But their underlying motives remain – they’ve turned their backs on a safe, conventional life and taken the plunge. And they’re all very happy with their life choices.
Organizations take great care in building up a solid reputation over the years with great products, impeccable service and fostering an inclusive and harmonious work culture. However, at times, the actions of one or a few employees can cause immeasurable damage to the entire company. We profile employees who their company probably regrets hiring.
