Creative team that creatively used Twitter to get hiredPosted: July 2, 2011
It’s a competitive world out there and it sure does take a lot to stand out in front of prospective employers.
Bass and Daan did just that on twitter. They used a simple hack to create five different twitter accounts with the words “Hire Us” appearing on the person’s profiles, and invited prospective employers to follow.
Once employers spotted the “Hire Us” invite they were redirected to a profile where in the timeline were tweets and videos of all their latest creative work.
Their work included, designing a shirt that united Dutch football fans with the national team, enabling 28 800 facebook fans to race Lewis Hamilton for Vodafone Live broadband and a campaign for Mcdonalds.
They got hired.
