Marriott’s 10 Days of Shoes on Facebook

Posted By Todd Raphael On May 8, 2012 @ 2:35 pm In Podcasts | 5 Comments

[1]Marriott is giving away $100 each day for 10 days to a different job seeker, a Facebook freebie meant to generate a little attention to the company’s community and make more people aware it has open jobs.

The hotel chain received the 2012 ERE Recruiting Excellence Award in the employment branding category [2]. It also has experimented with Facebook contests and games in the past, as mentioned in this post by Matt Jeffery [3].

Marriott’s Jessica Lee and I talk about the shoe program, below. She describes what drove the creation of the giveaway; how the company will measure results; what it means by a “spirit of community” it wants to create; and the balancing act between investing in a Facebook career page vs. a corporate careers site.
