For the past year, I've been scouting for talented job seekers who've made bold moves through public "hire me" campaigns. In the process, I've identified a handful of people who've been able to achieve "career gold": These job seekers have demonstrated the ability not only to execute a clever marketing approach but also to follow up and showcase the skills and aptitudes that will make them successful on the job. I call these individuals my career "rock stars."
My newest rockstar is Alec Biedrzycki, a recent grad of Bentley College and current YouTube sensation. After four internships and applying for several full-time jobs without noticeable response from employers, Alec developed a music video resume and uploaded it to YouTube.
Since creating his video last week, Alec has been had over 2,000 views on YouTube, been interviewed by CNN, and received a few calls from potential employers. To learn more about how he created his video, what he learned along the way, and what he's looking for in a position, read the full post on my other blog, The Emerging Professional.
