Unusual Job Search Tactics


It seems like some people will do anything to land a job these days. Paul Nawrockiosh got a job by wearing a tote board on the streets of New York City, handing out résumés, Jamie Varon created a website called Twitter Should Hire Me to gain the attention of hiring managers at the popular microblogging site. Robin Stearns launched a site called Hire My Husband to help her spouse find employment. Alec Biednzycki created a music video called Hire Me for employers and uploaded it on You Tube. And Pasha Stocking landed a gig by advertising her availability on a Bridgeport, Conn., billboard along Interstate-95.

But do unusual job search tactics really work?
