These days, job hunting sucks. That is, unless you’re a hiring manger, where you’ll receive plenty of free beer, cookies, and candy.

Designer Matthew Hirsch is one of the latest job-seekers to get creative with their resume. Taking full advantage of his last name and his design skills, he created the Hirschy’s Bar resume — a play on an actual Hershey’s bar. The ingredients are listed as Matthew’s qualifications and experience, along with his contact info.

On a completely unrelated note, Foodiggity is currently hiring… Please send your chocolate bars to be considered.

If your paper curriculum vitae isn’t cutting it, perhaps you should try packaging some treats to send to potential employers.
