Mumbai designer Avkash Shah gets internship at CRED, social media showers praises

June 8, 2021

For this young lad from Mumbai, it was not about drafting a two-page long, text-rich, stereotypical resume. Thinking out of the box not just earned him an internship at CRED (a fintech start-up). His impressive resume has also thrown him in lime light with social media showering praises for making his job application so catchy. 

A 21-year-old Avkash Shah chose to make an unconventional resume with little text, yet replete with ideas that the company has been representing in its advertisements. Avkash Shah, a 3D motion/graphic designer made an audio-visual resume, a short video of about 32 seconds and tagged the founder of CRED Kunal Shah and the start-up’s design head Harish Sivaramakrishnan on his LinkedIn post seeking an internship.

The resume which was posted five days ago, now has over 70,000 likes and has been trending on social media platforms for being one of the most impressive resumes.

“I want to intern at CRED. Here’s my application. I figured that if I was going to apply, I’d make something worth it. It pays to be good,” he wrote in the post.

Stating that design is art, he said in the video that he hopes to bag an internship at CRED with a hope to learn more.

In the recent past, CRED’s catchy, unconventional advertisements, some of which starred cricketers such as Rahul Dravid, Kumar Sanu, and Jackie Shroff have earned several likes for their creativity and went viral among the audience. 
Taking to LinkedIn to respond to this, Harish Sivaramakrishnan, Head of Design at CRED, offering Shah the internship said, “Hey Avkash Shah-all of us at CRED Design Mafia loved what you have created here and we are certain that there is a lot more we can dream, envision and create together. Welcome to the interns club at the CRED Design Mafia!” he wrote in the comments section.LinkedIn’s professional handle also shared the post on its home page, lauded the innovative hack to bag an internship:
