Clever job-hunting move

by Stan on 2012/08/02, no comments

I can’t say I condone this, but it’s a clever way to see how you stack up against the competition:

After a fruitless job search — endlessly scanning Monster.com and Craigslist and tweaking resumes and cover letters — he grew more curious about his competitors. So he created a fake Craigslist ad for an administrative assistant position and, in one day, received 653 responses from applicants with a wide range of education and experience.

Sneaky. Not ethical. But sneaky.
