Unsolicited applications: 3 examples & 10 tips for committed applicants

In the past, we have repeatedly presented exciting examples of creative applications - for example this sassy social media application. This week I have now fallen two more cases for the feet, which were not only cheeky, but also testified of ability. Hence 10 tips on what dedicated applicants should do differently.

Application via Twitter - but please with background

One of the two examples is already a bit older, by 2015 and shows what can be achieved with social media, a dose of courage and a lot of skill - Intercessio has blogged about it extensively.

Nina Mufleh really wanted to work at Airbnb and, after numerous failed application attempts, sent a tweet - but not only: In this tweet, she sent a link to a page on which she carefully analyzed why that was Company should expand in the Middle East. In addition, she had apparently also networked with various Airbnb employees to promote the tweet.

Cold Play: A sign for a dream job?

The second example is actually not a classic one Casting, but a nice example of how you can stand out from the crowd. But here, too, skills and appropriate self-confidence are required:

Der 19jährige Ferdinand hielt beim Coldplay in München ein Schild hoch, auf dem er bat „Let me play Everglow for you“ und wurde promt auf die Bühne gebeten, wo auch er durch seine Fähigkeiten tausende von Fans und Sänger Chris Martin überzeugte. Per Schild zum dream job - even if only for a few minutes, but with sustained media coverage.

10 Tips for dedicated applications

What struck me, on the other hand, is that when it comes to creative social media applications, many young people often think of particularly original applications, but often think about them Objective shoot out. Such an application must of course be conspicuous - but it should not attract negative attention. We show you how to do it and where there are often problems.

  1. Industry and address must be right: Naughty in creative areas - in the conservative environment rather traditional applications are appropriate.
  2. Have the contact person in mind: The target group has to fit - this applies to marketing as well as to applications. It does not do any good to flare your fireworks at ideas, but if your target person does not have the power to hire you.
  3. Formal Correct: Creative or not: The application should contain no spelling mistakes, the salutation should be correct.
  4. The sound makes the music: Stay in the language formally correct: Avoid confidences or colloquial language, which is not creative but intrusive!
  5. Creative packaging: Many applications are sorted out right away: make sure that the application also looks positively out of the ordinary.
  6. Witticism wins: Above all else, creative is amusing - a HRwho laughs tears is a good start!
  7. Show commitment: Zeigen Sie Selbstbewusstsein und Engagement – keiner will eine kreative Bewerbung an deren Ende steht „Ich hoffe auf Ihre Unterstützung“.
  8. To convince by ability: Whoever trumps must deliver, is the motto. Unfortunately, this is often not the case, so companies are skeptical accordingly. If you show that you can do something, you have won.
  9. Private remains private: They can be creative, even provocative: their private life is not part of the application.
  10. No sex! Sex sells - but not in applications! Erotic allusions can be really embarrassing!
