Career Advice That Costs a Pint of Blood

Donating blood as a way to get cash quickly is nothing new, but at least one blood bank has added another incentive to get people interested. Appropriately, the Stanford Blood Center in job loss stricken Silicon Valley is offering career counseling in exchange for a pint of blood.

Blood and job hunting certainly seem like an odd couple, but people are scooping up advice anywhere they can get it. The exchange includes resume reviewing and interview practice, two areas that seem to always need work. John Williams, the center's marketing manager said, "With increasing layoffs in Silicon Valley and an uncertain future for job growth, this event is an opportunity for those who have lost their jobs to get back into the market while also doing something positive for the community."

Would this incentive make you a more likely blood donor?
