1) Flyers with LinkedIn profile:

For the position of marketing specialist, Jonathan Swift took a different route. Instead of a traditional resume, he printed flyers with his name, photo, and QR code promoting his LinkedIn profile. Then, he attached them to the wipers of the cars of each employee associated with the company. As a result, the office employees who were watching him were impressed. And the best part, he became the talk of the office. Craig Wassell, Marketing Manager at InstantPrintUK, even shared CCTV footage of Swift.

Mr. Wassel also added that Jonathan’s application did more than grab my attention. It showed that he had researched the brand and had the right attitude, creativity, and sense of humor to fit the team perfectly.

QR code does wonders. Take that team. Here is an answer to why QR was important to be attached to every employee.

2) Start a digital campaign:

This campaign features Indian memes which are relatable and engaging. It attracts the attention of recruiters plus starts a conversation. For a marketing position, promotion is one of the best strategies to establish oneself as the right candidate.
