HR Strange But True!
November 05, 2003

Torsten Reinl expects 100,000 people to see his face plastered on the side of a Seattle bus. Maybe one of those folks will give him a job.

According to the Seattle Times, Reinl fully expects a recruiter to spot his 2-by-6-foot ad--the one bearing his picture and the words "Hire Me!" in big, block letters--jot down his phone number, call him, interview him, and offer him a job.

"If this doesn't work, what will?" asks the 33-year-old unemployed IT worker. "It's just so out there."

Reinl, laid off as a project manager for Bellevue, Wash., game maker Sierra Entertainment in 2002, hadn't had any luck with his traditional job search. So he took it to whole other level.

He recalled seeing a résumé posted on a bus shelter in his native Germany and thought, "You have to take it one step further, you have to be on the bus."
