Are you a recent grad who’s having trouble making your resume stand out from the competition? Maybe you just need a little luck — sweepstakes-winning kind of luck.

Beer brand Natural Light is offering a unique way to get your resume in front of hiring managers — provided those hiring managers are NASCAR fans. The winner of the brand’s latest sweepstakes will have their resume painted on a race car. (Specifically, on Chris Buescher’s #37 race car at the South Point 400 in Las Vegas on September 14-16.)

“Between the cut-throat job market and the crippling college debt that continues to grow in America, there’s never been more pressure for our drinkers when entering the real world. So, we decided this paint scheme should be an opportunity for a recent grad to stand out in the stack of resumes,” said Daniel Blake, Senior Director of Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch, in a statement.

During the Superbowl, Natural Light gave away $1 million to help 25 recent graduates pay off their student loans.

Do You Know What You're Worth?

The winning resume will be announced on September 10, 2018, when the new paint job is unveiled. The sweepstakes winner can have their entire resume, including their head shot, printed on the race car.

The contest is open to anyone over the age of 21. To apply, send your resume to

Entries are open between July 30 –August 6, so now’s the time to polish up that resume and send it off. You could see your work experience whizzing around the track by fall.
