Thinking Outside of the Box?

Earlier this week, my friend Kevin Grossman (from HRMarketer.com) posted a link on Facebook called “Mark by Ben”. Some of you may remember Kevin from the radio show that we did last week where he was a guest. He is a wealth of information and joined us to talk about Facebook and Twitter last week. We should have that podcast up soon.

Anyhow … back to what I was saying …

Kevin introduced the video by saying, “As a father and a son (and an aspiring drummer), this is the kind of video resume that I like to see. It may not land a job, but it sure gets my attention.”

Well … no secret that I’m married to a drummer. So my ears perk up whenever I hear those words anyway, but I decided to check it out to see what intrigued Kevin. See what a good social networker he is … he has me wanting to click already – haha.

Check out the video … and then let’s discuss:

… so … The DAMN Question(s):

What are your initial thoughts on this?
What else could Ben have put in there to make it even MORE powerful to you?
If you had a job open … would this get you to email him to get more information about his dad?

    WOW that is very powerful – If I was in a position to hire I would email for more info based on this video!! One of my initial thoughts was he raised an incredible Son and for that he should be so proud!

  • DeniseNo Gravatar says:

    I would at the very least e-mail the man. What a powerful, and sad sign of the times! Ben’s video was moving on more then just one level. I think Mark is raising a very caring and loving son, and he should be very proud. Ben will become the man we all hope our sons will be.

  • fancyNo Gravatar says:

    Gulp! Still wiping the DAMN tears from my eyes! What an exceptional young man obviously raised by great parents.My prayers go out to him and his dad for success.

  • CynthiaNo Gravatar says:

    Ben did a great job getting the word out. That’s all it takes. If Mark’s son is that creative my guess is Mark has a job already because the fruit never falls that far does it. You gotta love family and friends coming along side to help on another. It does not get any better. Money, jobs they all come and go…you will always have them but relationships heck we kill em off so quickly, divide them up if we’re not “feelin” it anymore. Mark and Ben…well that’s the money, that’s what’s priceless. Ben is emulating what his dad taught him, isn’t funny we never realize how much were being watched until it’s reflected right back at us through another.

  • LisaNo Gravatar says:

    So emotional. I was not expecting that! What a great child and future marketing major as seen in the credits. Sometimes we forget how stressful this economy is on our children as well. This child is so bright beyond his years you almost get the feeling that he is looking out for his dad’s self esteem more than anything else. I can only hope that I raise a child this thoughtful!

  • CamilleNo Gravatar says:

    My first thought? I hope he recycled all that paper. Sorry if that’s kind of cynical, but it’s the truth.

  • fancyNo Gravatar says:

    It’s o k to Use things like paper, water etc..Let’s not get crazy about our resources. When used for the right purpose we are doing the right thing. This was the right reason and who cares where the paper went afterward, it is BIODEGRADABLE!

  • Kristy NuttallNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks for sharing input everyone. For me, the message was very powerful. Maybe because I’m a parent and I would be so touched if my son did something like this for me. Who knows. Camille … I’m sure he recycled … if he’s that thoughtful about his dad, I have faith the he’s thoughtful of the environment too :-D

  • lindaloohooNo Gravatar says:

    personally, i hope he SAVED that paper, along with the amazing sentiment voiced upon it.
    if i were mark, i’d have every one of those pages framed and hung up in my house. forever and ever. amen.

    I’m so glad you played it forward. Very moving indeed.
