I needed a way to get the attention of a company I am interested in with more than just my resume. So I decided to build my own puzzle box. With the help of an online plan, I redesigned the box to allow me to place my resume and a memory stick inside and send it to a person within the company that I thought might enjoy it. Though the company isn’t hiring right now, it did get the attention and a response. I hope it proves to keep in me in mind when they do start hiring again.

Great idea and very nice box.
I think they spent more time analysing your personalities than on any other applicants.

great idea and nice box. Will probably work if the puzzle isn’t too hard for them to figure out :-))
