One clever copywriter got his name in front of the top creative directors in his industry. If the idea strikes you as worthwhile, turns out you can accomplish pretty much the same thing on Facebook.
How do I know? Because this online marketing company did exactly that to me (see the image above). The fact is, buying ads on either Facebook or Google could likely go either way with prospective employers (Whitson described the ad when he saw it as “super creepy”, and I wouldn’t entirely disagree), but it is another interesting demonstration of how a little creative thinking can get your name in front of someone who may be able to hire you.
What do you think? Would you try a similar tactic for a job? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
