The Google Job Experiment was conducted by Alec Brownstein, who came up with this outstanding idea to hunt for a job. Using only $6, Brownstein created an ad referring back to his website and contact information, which would show up as the first Google search result if his potential employers were to Google themselves online.
Of the five individuals he created ads for, he landed an interview with four of them, and got offered a job from two. This Google Job Experiment has definitely proved successful considering Alec Brownstein is now working at Y&R New York.
