profession of recruiting, I’ve seen a number of creative approaches for finding a job.

  • Walking the streets with a cardboard sign around ones neck
  • Creating a resume that has a a special color or scent
  • Dancing in the lobby of our staffing office (awkward)
  • Personal business cards in all shapes, sizes and colors
  • Websites, portfolios and audio recordings
  • The list goes on, and on, and on…

I witnessed something today that was a first… a MUSIC VIDEO! A RAP resume if you will…

Dave Berzack is a Sr. Developer with a passion for dynamic graphics and scripted animation. Within the “About Me” section of his site, he describes himself as a Developer, Designer and a Fool. Check out this quote from the “Fool” portion:

I do a lot of ridiculous things. Rapping about computer programming, building a trippy, fur-lined geodome, traipsing around in outlandish costumes, dancing in public… yes – I am a fool.

But a fool is not just a silly clown. He is a human Trickster, bucking conventions and breaking down walls to make way for real change.

I thrive on tossing aside the rulebook and expanding the possibilities. If you’re interested in making something big happen – something wild and explosive – please call me. I’d like to help.

I’m intrigued by Dave’s approach and positive he will continue to make waves! Of course, the 127,000+ views of his video resume serves as a pretty good indication.

Be inspired, think

    Now that’s just wickedly good!
    Great song, cool actors and super quality video.
    And he also included what many “serious” job seekers forget when they apply: what’s in it for the company? Well, apparently not just great code, but also high conversion rates and happy (and paying) clients.
    Thanks for posting this, this is too cool 😉

    Great post Michael! AND a great resume. I think this is a great example of thinking beyond the box …

    Etienne – You bring up an excellent point that’s worth a blog post in itself! The candidate’s ability to express what’s in it for the company is huge! Thanks for stopping by 😉

    Michael – Thanks man. I concur – great example of outside the box thinking!

  • Mkeeffer

    Nice illustration of using every opportunity possible to demonstrate who you are and what you’re about. Wouldn’t work for some professions, but this gives you a sense of who he is – very valuable! A risk that worked…

    Yeah… pretty cool stuff! 😉
