Okay, this is pretty genius. Continuing my posts about creative ways to land a job, check out Twitter Job Hustle.

These people continue to make me want to slap myself across the face and ask myself, “WHY DIDN’T YOU THINK OF THIS?!”

The Reverse Job Application

Posted in Job Search, Websites by Megan Do on November 5, 2010

Did anyone hear about this guy? I know I’m a little slow in posting about it but since I’m on the theme of job searching with Gus & Joe Agency Pizza Maker, The Pilgrimage to Crispin Porter and The Google Job Experiment, I thought it was only right that I posted this.

Andrew Horner is a University of Central Florida grad. Two years after graduating, Andrew was still jobless and losing hope. But that’s when he came up with the Reverse Job Application. So here’s how it worked: he created a website and with brief descriptions of his past, present and future. He also included interesting bullet points about himself; things you usually don’t get to tell an employer before they reject/hire you. And at the end of all of this info, an application for the employer to fill out to make him an offer.

You notice I wrote that in the past tense, right? Andrew is now happily employed and according to his website, he received “several dozen legitimate submissions from some really great companies.” After two weeks packed with interviews, he accepted an offer from “an awesome start-up.”

Really cool idea. Glad it ended well for him!
