Extreme job hunting: Would you do it?

Posted by Lisa Strawbridge - email

NORTH CAROLINA - Job seekers are trying all sorts of things these days to draw attention to themselves. A North Carolina couple are taking their search to the parking lot.

James Mallett is a former sales manager with 12 years of experience, but that didn't get him a job interview until he tried something extreme.

Mallett and his wife posted hundreds of resumes on people's cars. They say it paid off. He's received calls for three interviews. Mallett says that's more than he got in two months of job hunting.

Also watch video of a woman who paid $7000 to rent a billboard for a month and a chiropractor who stood on the corner with a sandwich board.

What do you think?

Would you try the more extreme methods to job hunting such as posting resumes on cars, renting a billboard or handing out resumes on street corners? Log in or register below to leave comments.
