Job seeker volunteers six hours for each interview


It's a tough job market out there, which has led to fierce competition for any opening. In order to stand out, job seekers have to get creative. One recent MIT graduate, KyNam Doan, has decided to donate 6 hours of his time for every interview he lands up to 440 hours over the next 2 years.

For each interview that matches his skill set, he will donate five hours to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area and one hour to the San Francisco Food Bank. On top of that, he will be donating an additional minute to Big Brothers Big Sisters for every unique visitor to his Website so you can help out a charity by simply stopping by to learn more about him. How's that for motivating people to check out your resume.

To top off the incentive for a company to call him in for an interview, KyNam is also listing the companies on the information page. So far he's has had nine unsolicited interviews and with the help of six co-donors has pledged 132 hours and $76 to charity. Even if he lands a job tomorrow, KyNam is planning to follow through with his goal of volunteering 440 hours over the next two years; an action he hopes will motivate others to volunteer their time at other organizations.
