When I started this campaign, I assumed that some people will share the blog post or the tweets, Facebook posts etc. I was right, but, unfortunately, not as many as I expected.
Please continue to share this link on any social network (or through emails): #HelpGreg get a job. We need all the help we can get.
Here are the provisional results after 32 hours of “work”:
- 11 emails;
- 17 Facebook private messages;
- 9 LinkedIn messages;
- 3 Twitter private messages.
As I wrote last night on Facebook, most of them were questions like these:
- Is Greg real?
- Is this a real job search?
- Is it just a publicity stunt?
To answer the questions above: Greg is real as you and me (although, for privacy concerns, I had never used his real name), he is really searching for a job (for about a year and a half) and NO, it is not a publicity stunt.
Really, a publicity stunt? To what? Am I advertising a product or a service? This is a WordPress.com blog (with a custom domain), so I don`t even receive money from ads and stuff like that. It`s forbidden.
Well, these were fun reading.
But Greg also got an interview invitation and 4 links to jobs to which he could apply. That`s a start. I don’t know if the interview invitation is related to the #HelpGreg campaign or not.
