One cannot say Matthew Johnson does not know how to market himself. Since losing his job just before Thanksgiving, Matthew Johnson has been job hunting online and has finally found the ultimate way, by auctioning his sealed resume on eBay.
Yes, his listing has gotten wide publicity. Starting price was US$20 and at the point of writing this, it has risen to US$23 garnering five bids from three bidders. Hhmm guess these people are curious to see what’s in the resume, which is only sent to the winning bidder. Auction closes on 5th January, 2009 and hopefully, by then, some company would hire Matthew Johnson as their marketing guy.
By the way, 50% of the winning bid price will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I think that’s awesome.
