HR Strange But True!
May 09, 2002
We all know that HR is never boring. But sometimes it can get downright strange...


For three weeks, Chuck Bridges has been taking an unusual approach to landing a marketing job. It entails standing at a busy San Jose, Calif., intersection and wearing a sandwich board that reads, "Will work for six figures."

But here's the truly strange part: He says it's working.

"I'm getting four to five leads a day" from people calling the number on the sign "and two to three offers a week," he tells the San Jose Mercury News. While no lead has panned out yet, he's confident it's only a matter of time.

"The comments I hear are great,'' he says. "People say it's a creative message. It has impact. I'm thinking outside the box. And, as one tech vice president told me, 'If you have the courage to stand out there like that, you probably have the courage to handle anything in our shop.'"
