Innovative Job Search

Gaurav posts the interesting example of an Investment Banker in NYC and how he found another job

Joshua Persky, the out-of-work banker who grabbed headlines this summer by standing on New York’s Park Avenue, handing out résumés to passers-by and wearing a sandwich board that said, “Experienced M.I.T. Grad for Hire,” has finally landed a job

Gaurav asks me if Indian i-bankers can use such creativity.

Well creativity certainly pays, but in these cases only for the first guy. Being the first Mumbai banker might pay off, but you'd have to be really looking for a non-banking career to get a job offer. Something tells me such whacky ideas won't be appreciated in the Indian banking community.
