Brilliant Radio Contest

Hat's off to the creative folks at Q107 for coming up with a great idea for a radio contest:
It happens to the best of us. One day you’ve got a job, the next day you’re downsized. Competition for jobs is fierce and you need a way to stand out. We give you, Derringer’s On-Air Job Fair on The Mighty Q! Derringer wants to put You in the Line of Hire with a chance to talk to thousands of potential employers all at once! Weekday mornings Derringer gives job seekers a 60 second shot to sell themselves. Get ready to make the most of your minute!
I think this is a great idea for a contest. All it costs the station is 60 seconds of airtime, but the contest winner gets exposure that on a major market radio station will give them a huge leg up in their job search. If you're out of work, this could be a much better contest to win than a couple hundred bucks or some concert tickets.

I hope that they can start posting interviews soon from contest winners who have actually been connected to a job.
