What are some innovative/ creative ways to get a job interview?
I really want to 'wow' the HR department, because there are so many resumes flooding the job market I'm trying to come up with a way to get the attention of the company. I really want to stand out. If you have anything HELPFUL to say I would really love to hear it. The position I'm interested in is an advertising coordinator. I have something in mind, but I want to see if you all come up with something better. Thank you in advance for your input.
