If you want to hire creative talent who can offer your business innovative ideas, you have to look for those creative and innovative qualities. And according to Tiny Rebellion, a Santa Monica, Calif. based independent advertising agency, that search begins with you.
The self-proclaimed “troublemakers, rabble-rousers, fearless agents of positive change” who make up the agency believe that in order to hire the right type of creative minds, businesses must adopt a more creative hiring process. And leading by example, Tiny Rebellion recently launched its #TakeMyJob campaign, a unique approach to the hiring process that gives job seekers the chance to display their skills while working directly with the company.
How it works
As a part of the campaign, job seekers can pitch their ideas for content creation to the agency. As explained in a catchy “how to” video (that certainly reflects the agency’s culture), interested applicants can tweet their pitches to @Tiny_Rebellion using #TakeMyJob or email them to Takemyjob@tiny-rebellion.com. The company then selects interested pitches and brings in the “candidates” to help them create a “great piece of content.”
And as a huge bonus to being able to bring their ideas to life, candidates can be offered a job depending on the agency’s overall experience with interested parties, their ideas and how they work with the Tiny Rebellion team.
“The post digital age requires talent to think in multiple mediums” Tiny Rebellion Content Creator, Derek Baynham, said. “We thought there is no better way to be able to create some awesome purpose driven content while also getting to see how the creator of the project works.”
The agency reports receiving more than 100 inquiries from around the world since launching its #TakeMyJob campaign for just over a month ago. This campaign has caused one of the highest spikes in traffic to the Tiny Rebellion site and a lot of fun conversations on social media, it reports.
“Overall we just want to be making purpose driven content as much as we can,” Baynham said. “We also think finding content via the talent who creates it is a fantastic way to vet that talent.”
