Unconventional tactics job seekers used to get attention!

Just read that job seekers are now using unconventional sales weapons to get the attention of hiring managers.

Some of the most memorable tactics identified by hiring managers include:

  • Candidate sent a shoe with a resume to “get my foot in the door.”
  • Candidate staged a sit-in in the lobby to get a meeting with a director.
  • Candidate washed cars in the parking lot.
  • Candidate sent a resume wrapped as a present and said his skills were a “gift to the company.”
  • Candidate handed out resumes at stoplights.
  • Candidate sent a cake designed as a business card with the candidate’s picture.
  • Candidate went to the same barber as the chairman of the board and had the barber speak on his behalf.
  • Candidate handed out personalized coffee cups.
  • Candidate came dressed in a bunny suit because it was near Easter.
  • Candidate told the receptionist he had an interview with the manager. When he met the manager, he confessed that he was driving by and decided to stop in on a chance.

When the odds are against us – only do we turn to unconventional and true differentiation?
Why not be unconventional and live differentiation always?
