PSFK Presents The Future Of Work

Advertising agency Muse Amsterdam have taken an interesting approach to hiring creative interns. They are using the free app ‘Draw Something‘ to assess applicants, which will ask prospective interns to draw a picture for a given word.

The agency believes the key to successful advertising is messages that are as clear as possible. So as they look to recruit new interns, they want to find people with suitable skills. Talented young creatives who want to apply can download the social drawing app for their smartphone, create a game, add the username “Drawsome intern” and start drawing one of the given words. Muse will “review the most beautiful, stupid and genius drawings, and perhaps your creation will get you an internship.” Check out the video for more information about the initiative below:
