In an earlier post Moveable Type’s Nasty Swing at WordPress I offered the following advice: Tongue Must Be Firmly Inserted in Cheek Before Delivering Playful Marketing Blows to Your Competitor.
Later in the week, I noticed this ad for the job site “The Ladders” “When you let everyone play, nobody wins”
I am by no means a career consultant nor do I follow career sites… but in my wanderings around the blogosphere I have seen posts which directly state that Monster.com is solely responsible for “ruining” online job searches. The ad above is delivering a nice, playful “jab” at Monster… but never mentions Monster by name.
The spot also does a GREAT job of creating a powerful visual for anyone considering searching online for a j-o-b.
Oh, and bravo to the smart marketing professionals at The Ladders for posting this video at You Tube so I can share the actual spot with you here, on my blog.
