An employment ad

Note: If you’re interested, I’m sorry to inform you that you’re too late; I’ve already been snatched up. The reason I put the pretty pink ad up here is because I worked too hard at the ad campaign for it not to be used.

This is a printer-friendly version of the journal entry “For hire!” from actuality.log. Visit to read the original entry and follow any responses to it.

    Hey! It’s pink! It’s bright! It’s catchy! I like it!
    Do tell about the ad campaign and whether it would be advisable to print that out and stick it to any job applications I fill out in the near future.

    The ad campaign was simple. With the otherwise dull and dreary work web-site, splashes of colour (through things like this badge and what not) were supposed to drive traffic to pages where I could sell myself.

    And the pink! Oh, if only the world knew of the number of colours I had to wade through to end up with that particular pink. The search left me loving it more than anyone ought to love a colour.

    And, I surely can’t speak as to whether it is advisable to attach a pink star to a job application; but I can say that if I noticed one while prodding through job applications, I will surely pay much attention.
