Turned down by Flipkart, IITian flooded with job offers



IITian Akash Mittal may not have measured up to the expectations of Flipkart, but the product listing-like presentation of his resume on the e-commerce platform has made many start-ups sit up, take notice and flood him with concrete job offers.
The 23-year-old came into limelight last week after he uploaded a screenshot of his profile on the Flipkart website — just like the way a product is listed — which went viral on the social media.
Pursuing the final semester of his five-year integrated Ocean Engineering programme at IIT Kharagpur, Akash is now examining all the offers before him, which include one of chief technology officer.
This innovative idea of resume presentation was born after Flipkart came calling to the campus for recruitment, but Akash did not make the cut out of 1,500 applicants.
“Being a six-pointer (CGPA), I knew I will never get through. So, I tried something innovative,” he told PTI while explaining the chain of events that led to the listing-like uploading of the resume.
“I then made a screenshot of a Flipkart listing page with information about myself on photoshop and uploaded it on the website’s career page,” he said.
Akash, who was brought up in Delhi, claimed that he has been receiving many job offers after the screenshot went viral.
“After this thing got viral, I have received a number of offers, including that of chief product manager and chief technology officer. I am studying the offers and will pick up the best one after my course ends at IIT,” he said.
While Flipkart declined to comment on the matter, Akash said he expects the e-commerce major to at least “appreciate his efforts”, but has not received any call so far.
Ironically, Akash’s book It Wasn’t Her Fault, written last year, is on sale on Flipkart as well as Amazon.

Thoughts In Mind


The journey of life is the reward and in this journey you feel feather of happiness.. But later on its a planet of devils and demons, selfishness and liars that makes you come across to the real faces of the person whom you love the most.


. In this journey one can push you in a deep well even if the person be the best or worst for you... 
But at the end you have to climb and stand For Yourself... For family.. For the Best of Friends..!!! 

The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go..  The happiest moment in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you cannot change.. 

Learn to away yourself from people's lives silently and gracefully who doesn't need you, Who doesn't bother about you, and be happy with small circle of people you have in your life . Remember Intelligent people tend to have less friends than the average person. The Smarter you are the more selective you become.
