That’s How You Stand Out: College Student Puts Résumé On A Hershey’s Chocolate Bar


As anyone who has searched for a job in the past few years can tell you, there haven’t exactly been a wealth of opportunities for people looking for steady employment.

In a market where who you know is seemingly more important than what you know, you have to work to set yourself apart from the countless number of faceless candidates competing for the same positions.

While most people focus on embellishment and flashy language to trick employers into giving them an interview, graphic designers have the ability to truly make themselves stand out.

While Matthew Hirsch of Grand Rapids, Michigan, might already be employed, he’s not taking any chances when it comes to his résumé.

The student was taking a summer class at Grand Valley State University when he was given an assignment requiring him to “create promotional material for himself.”

Hirsh was inspired by the Pennsylvania-based chocolate company that bears a striking resemblance to his name, and after studying the design of the famous Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, he decided to personalize it with a few key changes.

The result is an edible résumé, which lists Hirsh’s achievements where the ingredients and nutritional values are traditionally displayed.

The best part? The bars are genuine Hershey’s chocolate, meaning potential employers have added incentive to inquire about more information in the hopes that it will be presented on a Mr. Goodbar wrapper.

“A little bit of Monica in my life /
A little bit of Erica by my side /
A little bit of Rita is all I need /
A little bit of Tina is what I see /
A little bit of Sandra in the sun /
A little bit of Mary all night long /
A little bit of Jessica, here I am…”

“A little bit of you makes me your man.”

Aside from the genius “Mambo No. 5” arrangement, the “Share a Coke” campaign has also spurred many other works of amazing-ness.
