It was a full-time job looking for one, but one man refused to let the opportunity drive in and find a job after posting his resume in the back of a truck.
James Pemblington of Nottinghamshire, UK, quit his job in March when the amusement park where he worked was forced to cut staff due to the coronavirus epidemic, South West News Service (SWNS) reported. The man Annesley applied for about 100 jobs and went through two interviews, but unfortunately, the chance is finally over.
The determined father keeps striving, sending companies “edible” resumes – packages of macaroons with a QR code linking to his website. No recruiters have followed the gimmicks, but Pemblington’s luck changed when he won a contest to get his resume displayed on the back of an 18-ton truck.

Two days after his CV left, he was offered a new position by a recruiter who reported that he had discovered his login information while in traffic.
Pemblington shares about his last role at the UK’s largest theme park: “I was gutted when I left Alton Towers – it was my dream job.
“When I see the contest to have your CV on [truck] I thought, ‘How cruel,’ he remembers, adding that he was delighted to win the competition, which is a partnership between truck company DrivenMedia and job website Zoek.

“It’s amazing but bizarre and weird. What else could 2020 throw at you? You have to have a truck-sized CV to apply for a job,” he said.
Now, Pemblington is looking forward to kick off his new gigs on Sunday. As of now, the specifics of the new job have yet to be reported.

According to one Zoek executive, having a role is all about getting to the right place at the right time.
Diana Campbell, chief executive officer of Zoek, said: “Seeing James getting a job in just two days with a huge CV on the road shows he just needs to be given in front of the right audience,” said Diana Campbell, director Zoek operator, said.
