Google, please hire me
Marketer Matthew Epstein's viral attempt at bagging a job at Google.
Attach something fluffy to your face, create a cheesy video and invite the internet to laugh along with you. These are three simple steps that can get you a job interview with Google and almost one hundred others. Or at least they did the trick for Matthew Epstein, a marketer from America.
After creating this video and the website googlepleasehire.me, Matthew was inundated with media requests and job interviews. He was offered 80 job interviews from incredible companies including Google, Amazon and Microsoft. And while in the end he didn't get the job at Google ("perhaps they were jealous of [his] silky nose caterpillar"), he did accept a position at an exciting tech start-up called SigFig.
