Another Company Wants To Give You Beer For Letting Them Hire You

Last week we wrote about Hipster, a startup that’s trying to attract new talent by promising beer, money, and skinny jeans to any new hire or an internal referrer.

According to our sister blog AgencySpy, Denver-based web development company Unleaded Group is offering a similar (though less impressive) promotion: the programmer/software engineer the company hires will get $1,000 in beer from Denver Beer Company “for you to celebrate your new career at Unleaded Group with your friends.”

As AgencySpy notes the ad also says that the hire should “remember to include your new Unleaded teammates…we like parties.)” So maybe the company’s just promising to buy itself a bunch of beer. But still. Gimmicks like this make us hopeful that the economy is picking up.
