What do you do when resume-blitzing, Craigslist-combing and other jobhunting strategies prove fruitless in a dire economy? Star in a music video, naturally.
Atlantic Records recording artist Ryan Star's new single, "Breathe," features real jobseekers in its accompanying music video. The 12 individuals span the gamut of professions, from Jason Gadino, a balloon artist, to Ronald Schmidt, a nurse with 23 years of experience. An English teacher, investment banker, software consultant flight attendant, research assistant and a social worker round out the motley crew.
Prospective employers can actually contact each jobseeker on the "Breathe 4 Jobs" campaign site, giving an interactive twist to the music video.WATCH:
