After a year of unsuccessful resume hand-outs, emailing and interview rejections, Kelly Kinney decided that publicising herself could be the answer.
Often competing with hundreds of applicants for one post and attempting to keep her family afloat, Kelly decided to print her resume on the front of her shirt, with an accompanying cover letter on the back.
To make sure her status was emphasized, she emblazoned the design with "I NEED A JOB" to try and catch an employer's eye. When asked about her motives in this unusual stunt, Kelly stated:
"The name of the game is how you can get noticed, how you can distinguish yourself from everybody else."
This idea may have merit, or may just be seen as an amusing gimmick - as companies have now sprung up to offer 'resume merchandise' - including custom shirt designs and even underwear.
