Ankita Chawla probably put Instagram to the most efficient use ever, as she turned her account page into a creative resume. She designed her CV and posted it as a collage on her account; it is pretty creative and impressive. Take a look at it:

Reportedly, when she was asked about the inspiration or the thought behind the idea, she said that while her friends were bagging their first jobs, she was struggling with finding one. This made her want to do something different to attract the attention of employers, to not only her idea but also her skills.

Apparently, she devoted 60 hours in designing her Instagram resume and another 5 hours in its execution. It was not long before she managed to attract the attention of Deloitte India. She was offered her first job via Instagram and is currently working there as a visual content creator. 

Reportedly, when she was asked about the potential failure of her idea she replied, “I was a little skeptical at first because it wasn’t a traditional format that an employer is used to see. I knew my resume was a misfit among the other resumes that were going out and I knew that brought with itself a chance for failure and criticism but I eventually embraced it.”

Her account having accomplished its purpose says, ‘Now hired!’ in the bio.
