So I'm applying for a job at a store at the mall down the street from my apartment, but when I went into the store to ask for an application, they said, "We're taking applications, but you have to make your application." So I took my resume out of my messenger bag and was about to hand it to him, when he said, "No, like actually make something." He pointed to a three-foot-tall totem pole sitting in the corner behind the counter, and said, "That's one of the applications we received."

I really want to work at this store, but I'm COMPLETELY at a loss for what I should make for my application. I'm hoping I can get some interesting suggestions from you all to help me brainstorm something awesome. My resources are kind of limited so try to keep ideas confined to something I could make out of household objects or basic items.

Thanks in advance, everyone! ♥

You could cut out on a piece of cardboard or something, the shape of a product that's sold in the store then write your resume information on it. You could add color and draw things on the shape to make it look like the product and maybe put the store name on it.

Thanks for the suggestions! I ended up dismantling a cardboard box and covering one side in scraps of a race card from Thistledown, and taping a bunch of my film photography prints to that with some double sided-tape. I wrote all my contact info and my resume and references and a few fun facts in Sharpie on the back. :D

I think I'm going to take some photos of it. I hope they'll let me have it back.

Wow that's the first I've heard of doing something like that. Here when I apply for a job I fill in a simple application form or pass in my resume.
Haha

Sounds good what you ended up doing though (:

What kind of store is it ?
