Job application title page

Dropped outta school? Can’t find a job? Rejection letters pile up in the trash bin? Gooby has the solution: impress your future employer with a fancy title page on your resume! Using LaTeX and TikZ your application will look so good, that any recruiting office will even benignly overlook the tome of your criminal record.
