Three Food Ideas To Market Yourself In The Job Market

  1. 1. Three Food Ideas To Market Yourself In The Job Market By: Nathan Young @nvyoung
  2. 2. From my Visual Resume that has close to 10,000 views now. My Job Search Struggles To my Cover Letter, that has been featured on BuzzFeed.To my Video Resume, which has many views on YouTube. To my many followers on many social media sites, even with contacts, no job offers have happened. To my portfolio, that has been on Muck Rack and other websites. To my video, that parodies my job search struggles.
  3. 3. My Struggles In Finding A Job/Career Since being fired in July 2011, I have applied to over 1,150 jobs, with few callbacks and even fewer interviews. A few jobs almost happened, but the job offer fell through at the last minute. I also have been to 14 major job fairs and passed out my resume many times, but nothing happened. One can only be unemployed for so long. Eventually, you run out of money to live somewhere, buy supplies to keep yourself and your clothes clean and groomed, and money to buy food to keep yourself from starving. I am about at the point where I will be broke and homeless, it’s like sitting on a ticking time bomb waiting for the denotation. There’s nothing you can do but wait.
  4. 4. So, Announcing My Newest Marketing Tool, Food!
  5. 5. 1. I used Microsoft PowerPoint to make the labels on my food marketing items.
  6. 6. 2. I printed in black and white first and tested the labels to make sure they would fit!
  7. 7. 3. To make the “Road Candies” label, I took a empty Starburst box, and covered it with white paper and glued down with some hot glue.
  8. 8. 4. Then I cut out the labels, and glued them on with hot glue. Does it look nice!
  9. 9. 5. I filled the empty box with some butterscotch candy, and there is the “Road Candies” box!
  10. 10. 6. To make the “Road Soda” labels, I got a 8-pack of small bottles Dr. Pepper.
  11. 11. 7. I split the 8-pack in half, and took off the Dr. Pepper labels from the bottles.
  12. 12. 8. I glued the labels onto the bottles using some low temp hot glue.
  13. 13. 9. Then I put the bottles in the rings, and glued the big labels on the rings, there you go!
  14. 14. 10. For the “Road Sucker”, I cut out the labels and used some Tootsie Roll Pops.
  15. 15. 11. I glued the labels onto the lollipop on both sides, do not take off the wrapper!
  16. 16. 12. After gluing the labels onto the lollipops, I have a easy way to market myself!
  17. 17. 13. Each label comes with some cute graphics on the front, all made by me!
  18. 18. 14. On the back, the label includes my skills as nutrition facts, qualities as my ingredients, and a QR Code that takes you to Geek Alabama!
  19. 19. 15. Here is the entire collection! I guess I am going to try every trick in the book before someone finally hires me!
  20. 20. I am ready to be hired now! I will continue to do every trick in the book until someone hires me. If you know of something or if you want to hire me, e-mail me at
