"The idea occurred to me after I couldn't find a job for two months," she said, refusing to give her real name or the name of the company because she did not want media attention," she said.

But, she adds, "As far as I know, several other people are trying for jobs in the same way."

Cai Yuli, Taobao.com public relations manager revealed that a Shanghai-based advertisement firm "bought" tony615_2007, offering her a strategy research assistant's post.

While describing herself on the website tony615_2007 said she majored in business administration last year with excellent marks. She scored 710 in GMAT and won the first prize in a national English contest for university students.

"I lost my job in this economic recession and have to find another Labour is also a product and I'm selling it here," she said in her posting, describing herself as a "tough person".

Gu Xiaoming, a professor in Fudan University said that it is a very creative way of looking for a job.

"Sometimes, people don't know the right way to find a job We don't always have to depend on job fairs and agencies to get a job," Xiaoming added.
