Another Media Stunt Job Hunt With a Happy Ending How many times can this work?

It worked. After 60 offers, Adam accepted a position at KEO Digital. AOL Jobs caught up with him this week and parsed the strategy. Is this really a useful template for people looking for work? I mean, no one should have to spend that much money to get a company to look at his resume.
