Hey, I Just Met You; And This Is Crazy; But Here’s My Number; So Hire Me, Maybe

Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 12.00.43 PMIf you want an internship that involves making coffee, and then making some more coffee, this internship’s not for you.

That’s the message from this music video called Hire Me, Maybe, whose chorus will be stuck in your head longer than you want it to. It was made by interns at the eyewear designer-distributor ClearVision; I thought I’d pass it along since quite a few ERE readers ask about interesting careers-related videos (Julia Gometz, formerly with JetBlue, pointed this one out to me today).

ClearVision looks for interns who, among other qualities (interpersonal skills, leadership, communication skills — you know the drill) have a GPA of 3.3 of above. Interns participate in workshops like one on “the Science of Shopping” and another on left- vs. right-brain thinking. They also do community service work, such as at a camp called Kehilla, for kids with social/emotional/learning challenges.

The song was inspired by Carly Rae Jepsen’s. It’s about three minutes long, below.

    Fun video! More companies are embracing online video in the hiring process, whether it’s a video interview or fun recruitment videos. The great thing about a recruitment video is that it allows companies to show off their company culture and attract applicants who will better fit into the organizational environment.

    This is a great example of why bringing in a film crew with experience shooting EB and recruitment advertising video can make a huge difference.

    You don’t have to lose the user-generated feel to it, but with a bit more thought this could have been a better film if the production values were a bit slicker. Whilst it has a certain charm to it, it drags in places. But good on them for doing it off their own backs.
