Is This Resume Desperate Or Clever?

SomeECards called this the “most brilliantly desperate Craigslist resume ever created.”

In the ad, the author, Travis Broyles, begins by stating: “I Do Anything.” “I will do whatever you want me to do for less money than whoever you are paying to do it now.”


It then launches into a list of things Travis will do for a certain amount of money. For example, for $5, he will “Stare at you for 5 minutes; give a hug to the person of your choosing; call you on the phone and seem genuinely interested for 10 minutes; draw your face on a balloon; sing Barenaked Ladies “One Week” from memory to the best of my ability.”

The last item on the list for $5: “6 minutes of copywriting.”

Under the $10 list, there are a number of silly things (“Spin until I throw up or you lose interest”) and “12 minutes of copywriting.”

For $50, you get an hour of copywriting. And so on.

We think this is a brilliant way to show off your clever writing voice while advertising yourself.
Unfortunately, the citizens of Craigslist didn’t think so: the ad has been flagged for removal.
