R/GA: The Social Interview
Ever Googled yourself? Your prospective employers are doing the same—and checking out your tweets, status updates, and photos. Of course, you’re most likely finding out about them too. So we wanted to try a new kind of job interview: The Social Interview. We asked summer internship candidates to allow us to post three questions to their Facebook wall—not for them to answer, but for their friends to answer. It gave us a more complete picture of the candidates. With thousands of answers posted, we discovered some of the most young, social media savvy minds around.
