I noticed Paul Drury, HR & Recruitment Blog Ghostwriter at RecruitmentWriter.com, posted the following with his wife’s photo and a sign with “hire me” on LinkedIn a couple of days ago:
“This is Julia.
She is my wife.
She is looking for a job in Logistics.
(one hour from Cambridge, UK)
She will kill me if she finds out that I have posted this.
Please LIKE it to help her.
Just don’t tell her ….”
At the time of this writing the post had received 2,908 ‘likes’ and 258 comments ranging from “I would so kill my husband” to “awesome work”. Among Paul’s replies he mentioned that Julia has a day of phone chats lined up and possibly a couple of opportunities. Good for Julia and Paul. What a creative inspiration!
