How far would you go to get a job you wanted?
Closed

Recently a marketer in San Francisco posed as a donut delivery man in order to get his resume to the right person. He brought a box of donuts to different agencies he was interested in and tape to the top of the box was a note and his resume (along with delicious donuts of course).

He already has 10 interviews lined up. Genius!

Tell us...Have you done something unconventional to get a job? Would you now think outside of the box the next time you're submitting a resume to a company?

I would print my resume as a candy wrapper for chocolate bars, as I read someone had done before. Food gets attention!

If I was younger and spirited I absolutely would! It shows you have a creative persistent positive engery about you. What company wouldn't want to hire a person like that?

Wow! What a great idea! I have never done anything unconventional to get a job. I wont be applying for a job anytime soon but if I was I probably would not do anything out of the ordinary.

Wow, what a unique way to get a job! I have not done something unconventional to get a job, but maybe I should consider doing something unconventional in a future job situation.

I've never done anything unconventional to get a job. However, that's not to say I wouldn't in the future.

When I Was Young, I Baked Cookies During The Winter Holiday Season. Then I Would Give Small Plates Of Cookies To All Of The Neighbors With A Note Saying: WHEN THE SNOW BEGINS TO FALL, DON'T BE AFRAID TO GIVE ME A CALL! I Shoveled So Much Snow When I Was Young! My Mom Warned Me That If I Took The Responsibility, I Had Better Follow Through! I Certainly Did! I Had Lots Of Jobs, And Became Friends With Many! I Really Did Enjoy It!
These Days, Though; It's Tough. You Have To Really Think Outside The Box! There Are Many People Vying For Few Jobs...
