I found a job application in Yorckstrasse in Berlin Kreuzberg to be particularly original and efficient: the authors have asked for an entire bakery instead of just a piece of the cake, the same size on a bridge.

Actually a new one Idea: In addition to the bridging days and the bridging allowance, there is now also the bridging application! At least everyone can see it! I'm natural clearthat that is meant differently - but I found the saying just damn funny!

Find unusual jobs on social media

But how do you find unusual jobs? The answer: in dialogue with others. And how does it work best: Of course in social media.

All beginnings are difficult: This also or especially applies to making new contacts and the Job Search in Web 2.0. First develop a reputation slowly, then build up contacts with a lot of patience and gradually strengthen them.

5 tips for job hunting in social media

It takes a long time before you can even talk about an attitude. But the effort is worth it. An overview.

  1. Finding information: Web 2.0 offers excellent opportunities to find information about potential employers. Because depending on the industry, many companies or their employees are at Xing, Facebook or Twitter active. This is how you can find out: How open is the company, how do you deal with criticism, what is the attitude of the employees? Those who know more are more likely to find their dream job!
  2. Think strategy: When looking for a job in Web 2.0, you don't just apply for a job, but build a long-term reputation and a network of contacts that you can access if necessary. This takes time, but in the end it is often more effective than any piece of application paper. So first think about who you want to reach and with which strategy you can build a positive image.
  3. Communicate: Your tactic in Web 2.0 is: Communicate. Because those who only consume are not noticed. Therefore, you have to stay active in order to draw attention to yourself: spread interesting information, link to your own blog posts, ask questions, enter into dialogue with potential employers, make contacts. How this works in practice is shown in this example by Johannes Lenz, who has now found a well-paid job.
  4. Search specifically: In Web 2.0 you can also find suitable job offers even faster than in traditional online job boards. Because job search engines such as enable you to find job advertisements that are posted on the Internet and especially on Twitter immediately after they are published - and not, as in many other search functions, only hours later.
  5. Beware of loss of image: Web 2.0 is also about showing others who you are: So always be authentic and personal. Even when it comes to authenticity: Always look at your statements from the perspective of potential employers - company gossip or anger about the former boss have no place on Twitter.
