The self-titled author and aspiring product manager Aakash Neeraj Mittal "sold" himself on the website by using the listing to creatively show off his résumé. He later took the posting down, but one of his classmates uploaded a screenshot of the posting to a forum.

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. ... I didn't get an interview call though, but I hope it will bring a smile on someone's face."

While the post didn't help Mittal get a job at Flipkart or elsewhere, he told Buzzfeed he did land another position.
