Here's a sneaky recruitment stunt from 180LA, which is using Snapchat geofilters targeting West Coast ad agencies and tech companies to advertising a social media manager position.

180LA targeted five agencies—72andSunny, Pereira & O'Dell, Deutsch, Goodby Silverstein & Partners and R/GA—as well as the L.A. offices of Facebook, Google and BuzzFeed. (Any decent social media manager is using Snapchat regularly, the agency reasoned.) Content on the agency's Snapchat Story tells viewers which positions are open, instructs applicants on how to apply, and gives 10-second tours of the agency and its view of Ocean Avenue.

In the first 10 hours, more than 40 candidates approached 180LA about the position, and the agency even booked a few interviews.
