In Massachusetts, jobless individuals are making thirty-second video recordings of themselves, to be aired at a television show. The approach, which has been hailed as the “cutting edge” in job searching, has received mixed responses from viewers and non-viewers alike.
One of the main problems of the show was the audience. Are employers actually watching the show? Are they interested in what these jobless folks have to say on camera? So many questions, but the producers of the show itself are quite most of the time.
Whether this stunt would become a small solution to a deepening problem remains to be seen. Let’s not hope that this doesn’t merely end up in the heap of You Tube has-beens.
