Facing a tough job market, even for an MBA, I know have to differentiate myself from my fellow applicants. I researched “creative job searches” and came across some inspiring, breakthrough ideas by Alex Brownstein and Brandon Kleinman.

Their stories got picked up by the media and landed on the screens of recruiters, bringing them fame and employment.

Striving for a similar fate, I’ve employed my illustration background to create a “live marketing interview.” A recruiter is interviewing me via Skype, while chatting with a digital marketing manager to tell her how it is going, thus revealing my resume and “career priority messages”.
