He added: “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.”

Mittal listed himself on the website for Rs 27,60,200 ($40,990). He described himself as “artistic by heart” and “intellectually curious.”

According to local reports, he didn’t get an interview with the company.

Flipkart is an e-commerce site founded in India in 2007, similar to Amazon.com. Its founders, Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal, had worked for Amazon before starting the firm.
