Joblessness is a phase in life that pretty much breaks a person apart. And while people often seem to complain about their jobs incessantly, they don't speak about the harms of being on a couch, sitting unemployed. And when you are on the lookout for a job, what exactly are you looking out for?
More importantly, what if you come across a job advert that just speaks to you, on what you want - on a deep, personal... and on a creative level. Someone should send cookies to those who make these recruitment ads so creatively attractive, that even the ones who already have a job give a thought to apply for these. (So much for employees' loyalty.)
So, here are a couple of examples of the most clever job adverts companies came up with, that almost step out of the billboards to talk to you.
That directly hits the spot. After all, who doesn't want a long vacay in a job, huh?
Lemme try. "Ah, Fine. I'll have one more before I go home." Yay... Looks like I can apply for this bartender job (If only I had a bartender experience).
Sitting on Internet all day, going through tweets and memes and comments... Count. Me. In.
This was a 'Cards Against Humanity' level satire over the fact that they want a CEO who capable of handling pressure, has good public skills and... WAIT!!! 8 years of Presidential experience? Well, too bad I ain't Obama!
EA Canada went full-on savage when they decided to put up this billboard when their local competition was going through a 'lay-off phase'. The billboard is in ASCII code, saying 'Now Hiring.'
Perfectly depicting how it feels to be stuck up at something that you aren't meant to be doing, monster.com made its point of delivering the right job opportunities to the right people.
The idea to put it on the roof is so clever, making it seem like anyone who's about to take a drastic step because of unemployment can give themselves a second chance.
This ad gathered tremendous controversies with the impulse caused by the statement that enticed racism and discrimination, with the justification positively provided in the minute fonts by the end of the poster - 'We hire individuals.'
They could not be more evident about their need to hire a graphic designer.
Those are some accurate points they are making - I am convinced.
Even I won't be able to resist myself filling those blanks - whether I'd wanna apply or not - I know it will be a fun activity.
Well, it's as they say - If you do what you love, you don't have to work a single day in your life. Combine it with 'Fake it till you make it', and you get this brilliant gem-of-a-job-advert.
Who doesn't have a problem with a monotonous 9-5 job? But how about you get to choose when you wish to work - Amazing, no? That is exactly Lyft decided to make their mark, and leave this billboard in front of every eye that steps in San Francisco, building an entire community audience.
This simple, minimalistic and obvious search requirement couldn't have been easy-to-miss.
That's all, folks.
