Mobile firm wants job applications over text
A job ad over Twitter asks for applications via SMS.
Forget sorting out a fresh CV and banging out a new cover letter, one firm is looking to hire in just 160 characters over a text message.
Welsh mobile marketing firm Teimlo is on the look-out for a new marketer. The position calls for would-be employees to catch the company's eye with a single text.
In 160 characters, Tiemlo is looking to find out if you're "qualified, sassy, good with words, dynamite at events, Adobe compatible, have working knowledge of mobile and social media and are a determined multi-tasker and networker." That's 146 characters right there, so good luck.
The job opening has been advertised on Twitter, but will apparently also be seen in a few magazines, too.
Teimlo's chief executive Phil Terrett advertised the job on the micro-blogging site; if you can decifer it, you might be the one for the job: "Text JOB + y it should b u to 82088. 160 characters 2 make an impression! Cost 1 std rate txt , UK only. C teimlo.com".
The firm will also be responding to candidates via SMS, letting shortlisted candidates know they've won an interview via a text message. Presumably, those making the shortlist will be required to bring a CV to the actual interview.
