If I were Google, I'd probably hire Matthew Epstein. He's a marketing expert who spent $3,000 on a flashy website, Googlepleasehire.me, and a video in hopes to catch the eye of the tech giant. I have to admit, although it's just another marketing gimmick, it seems to be a very well thought out one and a lot of effort has been put into it.
He put together a very captivating introduction and listed a really great reason for wanting to join Google — he wants to learn from a talented and passionate manager and have the opportunity to work with products that impact millions of people on a daily basis. On his "Contact Me" page, where he directly addresses Google HR employees, he listed links to available Google job positions he's interested in. This proves that he's done his homework and it also makes it easier for Google to figure out where to place him if they're interested.
I think the website is a clever way of catching an employer's attention and the campaign is perfect for the marketing field. It really shows off Matthew's strengths in creativity, affability, and his ability to create a buzz. In fact, Google has already reached out to him and told him to go through the standard hiring process, which he is willing to do. What do you think of this move — is it smart or too extreme?
