Dutch designer land a job by "hacking" Twitter

Dutch Designer - Bas van de Poel and Daan van Dam looking for job in a unique way by "hacking" the follower box in Twitter

Many ways to find a job, but if you are looking for a job position as a designer that require high creativity then the usual way is certainly not attractive in the eyes of prospective employers.

Bas van de Poel and Daan van Dam aware of it and must think something out of the box. They then took a unique way to get the attention of people in a position to give out jobs by "hacking" follower box in Twitter.

They make 5 Twitter accounts and upload a profile image of the alphabet H, IR, E, U, S. Then with the account created they sequentially follow some Creative Director.

And when the Creative Directors check their Twitter account they will see the words Hire Us (hire us) in their follower box.

They end up getting a job in the Boondoggle Amsterdam, after Gaston Serpenti interested in their creativity.
