British Mobile Phone Company Teimlo Is Hiring by Text Message

Requesting Resumes Via Text Message: Brilliant or Baffling?

If you've been tracking your whereabouts in 140 characters on Twitter, then you'd have no problem detailing why you're the best person for a job in 160, right? British mobile phone content provider Teimlo is hiring by text, requesting that potential candidates send a 160-character text message selling themselves as the first step in the application process.

If the company is impressed with the text, candidates will have to go through more traditional hiring steps like sending a full resume and interviewing in person. What do you think of the tactic, is it brilliant or baffling?
