Creative recruitment advertisement

A recruitment advertisement that works – BIG TIME!

Wow! How creative is this? Jobsintown.de an online employment company in Denmark (presumably) launched a very cool ad campaign to lure people to their website some time ago and (in my opinion) its still working. Check out the screenshot below!

This rather ingenious ad is of a guy handling financial transactions while trapped in an ATM machine. The caption beneath it is “Life is too short for the wrong job.” (NICE!) Below is another brilliant piece; some poor slob washing clothes, but from the inside of a washing machine.

What I especially like about these ads is that they are life-sized and (at first glance) easy to mistake for the real thing. Wow! Hat tip to VisualFunHouse for the pictures. Click here to see more examples of this brilliant ad campaign.

    I think this is very good display of creativity. Solid creativity can create a ripple effect of inspiration. Inspiring potential recruits, current employee, and even, clearly, blogger such as yourself.
