An Oyinbo man has taken to social media to show off the best job resume he had ever received in his life.
Edward Denyer shared on his LinkedIn page a copy of the resume that seemed to be very short, not even half the page of the paperwork.
The Canada-based businessman who runs Eco-Coffee Corporation hailed the approach of the writer of deciding not to beat about the bush and instead be intentional.

It was observed that the one-page resume was not more than 11 paragraphs with some sentences having a few words.
Edward said it was for that reason he hired the person.
"Best resume I ever got, no messing around and to the point! Hired..."
LinkedIn users share their thoughts on his decision
Amit Sharma said:
"Well I've seen this approach work only in the movies! Hindi movies to be precise. If you say you've hired this candidate, I'll take it on it's face value!"
Goodness Chima commented:
"He has been given a chance. This is what it's all about. I am glad Edward Denyer that you took him in. I hope he lives a dream starting from here."
Dave Tooke stated:
"What a lot of garbage people talk.
"Simple to the point application.
"If you want flannel then you’re looking for the wrong thing.
"Entry level position. What’s wrong with a simple half page description of what thx person can offer."

"Unfortunately in the real world this resume doesn't have a chance. I see thousands of CVs of experienced people who write almost the same about their skills: nice people ready to help. Companies are not looking for nice people, they look for someone who would solve their problems with right skills and attitude.
"Being a nice person is not a career. Moreover, I have never seen anyone who would say s/he is not a nice person and is never happy to help, especially during an interviewing process. But a nice story, definitely."
