Victor Petit was one of many professionals that have gone through difficulties securing work. In the current job market, using inventive measures can give you an edge over your competition.
His resume looks as standard as any other, until you flip over the document and find a full size image of his face. Something, however, is missing.
Where his mouth should be, a QR code was substituted.
When potential employers scan the code and place their phone on top of Petit's resume, a video loads revealing the job hunter's mouth.
This both completes the image and allows Victor to include an interactive component to his resume -- a way to introduce himself and make the job application more memorable.
Since Victor introduced this idea and it went viral, several copycat versions have appeared online.

People like cows. They celebrate cows. They then cover the cow in QR codes because.. the creators hope it makes the papers.
The Sao Paulo Annual Cow Parade is a big deal every year in Brazil. It describes itself as 'one of the largest contemporary street art events in the world'.
Brazilian artists, namely Daniel Siarkovski and Rafel Grostein, thought it would make great headlines if they put QR Codes on something for the 2010 parade.
Considering previous artwork has included 'acupuncture' -- a bloodied cow stabbed through with needles -- a cow sipping a martini and one sliced in half, perhaps QR code splotches don't stand out that much in the big picture.
This piece of artwork, named 'Bottom Up' is an oil painting created by Fabrice de Nola, an Italian-Belgian artist.
It is one of the first oil paintings in the world that contains readable content via QR code.
Take out your phone and scan the code to read one line of content: "An internet of things" -- apparently in reference to the blurred lines between online information and physical objects.
