We’re no strangers to #HireMe campaigns here on Corn on the Job. We’ve talked about campaigns for folks wanting to work at Chipotle, Krispy Kreme, hockey & sports sales, and even someone who just wanted to get a job in New York City.
Today we’re sharing a video resume from Jannesse Davidson. She’s hoping that her song to Jon Stewart will land her an interview and eventually, a job as the next Daily Show Correspondant. Take a look at her video and stop back for my comments below.
Will this be enough to gain attention from Jon Stewart?
Well, all we know so far is that a video has been created. What we don’t know is, (and I will be following up with Jannesse) how is this video being sent? Is she using social media to distribute the video and make sure the YouTube page is seen? Is a link being sent in an email? These are all of the questions that candidate’s must ask themselves when employing a #HireMe campaign.
It’s not always enough to just be creative and develop the content. The #HireMe campaign must include tactics for reaching the target audience as well, which can take some extra time to do right, before it becomes a viral success.
What do you think? Will she get an interview? Will she be hired? What else would you like to see her accomplish with her #HireMe campaign?
