A Bounty For A Job

I read this article (please click the title link to this blog) and it offered a very creative way for those who are still looking for a job. Below is a brief synopsis:

Jacob Share, 33, started an email chain by sending his resume and job search objective to his family and friends. He asked them to send it on to others and offered a monetary prize in the amount of $150 to the person who led him to a job as a Web development manager.

“The process went quickly after I sent my initial mailing to almost everyone I knew,” he said. “It only took one friend’s forward beyond that initial mailing to get a referral that lead to the ultimate job offer.”

I don't know if this idea will actually work for everyone. What do you think?

I want to also encourage anyone from the Midwestern location to forward all job opportunities to me via e-mail or in the comment section of this post. I am preparing a separate blog for my fellow mid-westerners.
