Want to make yourself stand out from the crowd of other jobless lawyers? Well, you could try the strategy employed by US law graduate Brian Zulberti.
Zulberti sent a mass email (see below) to law firms in the Delaware area, which deliberately contained little personal information, other than a picture of him in a T-shirt with the sleeves rolled up to reveal his toned biceps…
The likely reaction of a curious recipient of such an email? To Google Zulberti. Which would lead them to the first result for “Brian Zulberti”: his Facebook page. There, specially set as his profile picture, was the “Hire Me!!! no…as a Lawyer, Damn, NOT A [sic] ESCORT” photo (see above) — which has now been removed.
So far there has been no word as to whether Zulberti’s strategy has been successful — although, as US legal blog Above the Law notes, his failure to grasp the basic rules of grammar doesn’t encourage optimism.
