The software company’s creative call for employees filters potential applicants.
Microsoft has come up with a creative way to target potential applicants for one of its job posts. The software company is currently looking for a new Bing developer and it has hidden the job post in the web code of its Bing homepage.
People only have a chance to find the link to the job opening if they’re using Internet Explorer and have the debug settings enabled. IE users who hop on the Bing homepage will encounter a popup asking if they want to debug the webpage. Running the IE developer tools console will lead to another message, this time asking, ‘Interested in creating Bing.com experiences? Apply today.’ The user will also find a link to the job posting for a Bing developer on Microsoft’s career website.
The ‘secret job post’ is certainly not a secret anymore, but if you’re interested in the post you can certainly check out the rest of the job requirements and see if you have more than the ninja IE skills they want.
