No Google Job But No Failure Either[VIDEO]

You Tube

Make way for another leap in the Social Media World, I ran across this  story earlier this morning and thought it was an Ingenious Idea using social media VIA Youtube as a source for Job Searching but It apparently takes more than a clever YouTube video, a fake mustache, and a glass of scotch to land a job at Google. This was the lesson for Matthew Epstein, a marketer from Atlanta, whose entertaining video resume and appropriately named website ( did not land him his dream job. “No, Google didn’t hire me nor did they extend an offer to me,” Epstein wrote on his blog today. “At the end of the day they judged me on the same criteria they judge every other candidate on and I didn’t meet those criteria—plain and simple.” There was a silver lining for Epstein. He also announced that SigFig, a San Francisco-based investment startup, had given him a job.  For now, Epstein plans on retiring the mustache and focusing on his new gig. According to Epstein, here’s how successful his virtual job campaign was:

* Received 80 interview offers and engaged in phone and in-person interviews with Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Salesforce (among others)

* Received over 400,000 unique visits and 720,000 page views for

* Received 36,000 percent  increase in visitor traffic for my personal blog

* Google resume video received over 450,000 YouTube views.

* Received over 17,000 Facebook Likes, 4,800 Tweets and 4,100 Google+’s

For more information on Epstein and his new job, check out this video.
