It seems like everywhere in my circle of friends and aquaintances there’s someone who has been laid off. In an economy where cash is tight, every little bit of savings would be helpful!
In comes Staples with their Career Stimulus Program to help job applicants find their dream gig. You have to write the resume of course, but if you visit participating Staples location you can get 20 resumes printed for free from now till June 13, 2009.
Also, you can get 40 free business cards to hand out and hopefully snag someone interested in hiring you for your next career.
News is going out via blogs, Twitter and Facebook – making this a successful strategy. Why? Because 1) people love free stuff. Staples is a store related to careers. Without people working the store will suffer and 2) it’s something that people feel good about sharing on their social media platform., which makes it easy for the buzz to spread about Staples.
Win win all around.
