I have qualified for my company’s Performance Forum trip nine years out of ten that I have worked there. For the last five years, it has become tradition that I perform a LIVE rap with the band on awards night. Unfortunately, this year, I won but was unable to attend, so I did what I do best and still made sure my tradition lived on: I created a rap video. I was very fortunate to have a wonderful staff of teammates to help me act, shoot, and complete the video on time.
As I was completing the video, I thought it might also be a great way for me to differentiate myself from the competition. I am pretty certain that very few recruiters are making rap videos that their clients get to see.
I am curious what others think of this — can we start to use YouTube as a form of self-promotion in recruiting sales? Corporations certainly have, but can the individual recruiter do it, too? Share your thoughts below, and enjoy my video for Fun Friday.
