Landing a Job at W+K Involves a Knowledge of Chairs and Weather Reports


Here’s one way to get a job. By way of How It Happened, we were pointed to the blog run by Wieden + Kennedy‘s office in London, which detailed how they found their newest staffer. In short, he parked himself out in front of their building with an umbrella after sending the firm an e-mail saying, essentially, “I’m out front. If you’ve got the time to talk about a job, I’ll be out here.” And what would usually get a person arrested, instead got the recent university graduate a potential job. Also, his stunt is likely going to attract the attention of a million blogs over the coming days. So therein lies the birth of Luke Forsythe‘s career (we couldn’t help but publish his name, if just to give him some more vanity search love, god bless ’em).
