New Delhi: In a unique way to grab the attention of his probably employer, an alumni of Indian Institute of Technology-Kharagpur put himself on sale.

Aakash Neeraj Mittal, a KGPian, wanted to land a job at e-commerce giant Flipkart. In a bid to draw the company's attention, he put himself on sale on the website.

The author of ‘It wasn’t her fault’ wrote in his resume that he wanted the designation of Product Manager.

“Sold by” IIT-Kharagpur (‘Best since 1951’ as he put it), Mittal priced himself at Rs 27,60,200 only.

With his detailed resume on Flipkart, Mittal wrote, “When you are a 6-pointer and competing with best of the best minds of the country, you know how hard it is to land a job. You start doing some crazy and random stuff to stand out from the crowd. This is my resume for Flipkart’s APM Profile. I didn’t get an interview call though, but I hope it will bring a smile on someone’s face.”

He deleted his profile later.
