Juniper Park is based in Toronto. It has a number of major clients, like Quaker Foods, Virgin Mobile Canada, and Frito-Lay. It has won a bucket of accolades from the Effie Awards, Canadian Newspaper Association’s Extra Awards, the Canadian Marketing Association Awards, Communication Arts and Applied Arts, and has talent lined up in the lobby scratching their heads trying to figure out what it takes to get an interview.
Derek and Laurent, two young Joes from Toronto, went on a mission to get a job at Juniper. They pondered the question, what does it take to get a job at an award-winning agency like Juniper Park?
One Saturday afternoon, these two legends set up camp in the lobby of Juniper Park and created a video in hopes to win a seat at the agency. Their video is unscripted, low-budget, and very clever. Made with only a black marker, white construction paper, and a video camera, this video is bound to leave you feeling warm, fuzzy and inspired. Their video is actually an intro to their site, which gives you a chance to warm up to them and see the awesome work they have done in the past.
They asked, “How do you impress an agency on a shoe-string budget?” Well, let them show you here: http://willderekandlaurentgetajobatjuniperpark.com/
So, did Derek and Laurent get a job you ask?
They certainly did. Their first job was setting up the agency’s Facebook page. Today, Derek is now an Art Director and Laurent a Digital Copywriter at Juniper.
Good on ya Derek and Laurent, here is wishing the best of luck to you both in the future. We tip our hats to you.
We want to know, what is the craziest thing YOU have ever done to differientate yourself to a potential employer, did it work?
