Man gets job by buying bosses name on Google

A clever copywriter has landed his dream advertising job -- by buying the names of his ideal employers on Google.

Alec Brownstein used Google adwords to buy the names of creative directors at top New York ad agencies for a total of $6.

This meant when they "vanity searched" Google for their own name (like you don't?) they saw a message from him above the normal search results.

His message "Googling yourself is a lot of fun. Hiring me is fun too." along with a link to his website, go him interviews with four of the five people he targeted.

As a result he accepted a job with Y&R NY… where he is now required to come up with equally creative ideas on a daily basis.
