Carolynn Duncan used an ingenious approach to convince me and Phil that she was the right person for our latest position at Provo Labs. After finding out about the opening from her friend Adam (who works at our online video company 10Speed Media), she started a blog called “Why Provo Labs Wants to Hire Carolyn Duncan” at blogspot.
She instantly won us over with her creativity and courage. She will be helping Phil get in front of dozens of executives at large companies, including Fortune 500 companies, as he takes Provo Labs Consulting (our web 2.0 consultancy and development company) on the road, so we need a smart communicator with a creative streak who can help Phil open doors wherever he goes.
Welcome aboard, Carolynn!
Has anyone else ever landed a job by creating a blog specifically to convince the hiring executives that they were the right person for the job?
With all the press coverage that comes when bloggers get fired for writing something they shouldn’t have written, it’s about time we see some press coverage about people actually getting a job because of their blog.
