It is placement season and major companies are making a beeline to top institutes to recruits some of the brightest minds in the country. 

The competition is so severe that bagging a dream job, even if you belong to the prestigious IITs or IIMs, is no cake walk. 

And some students are bringing out their creative best to woo potential employers. Take Aakash Neeraj Mittal for example. 

An IIT-Kharagpur graduate and author of "It Wasn't Her Fault", Aakash wanted to apply for Flipkart's Product Manager profile. So, he created a resume which resembled a Flipkart page and put himself up for sale on it.

In a Facebook post, which he published earlier this month, Aakash wrote, "When you are a 6-pointer and competing with best of the best minds of the country, you know how hard it is to land a job. You start doing some crazy and random stuff to stand out from the crowd. This is my resume for Flipkart's APM Profile. I didn't get an interview call though, but I hope it will bring a smile on someone's face.

"It took 70 hours for an Amateur Photoshop-er like me to make this resume," he added. 

Though he hasn't bagged the job yet, his "out-of-the-box resume" has been getting him a lot of compliments. 

Here's wishing all the very best to Aakash.
