Occasionally, you’ll see people put up a “why you should hire me” page,
such as the
one that got Jason Zimdars a gig at 37signals. These pages are
effectively sales pages for people, though they read a little
differently from a sales page
for a book.
(If you don’t believe that a “hire me” page is a sales page, I
recommend reading a bit more Patrick McKenzie.)
Most frequently you see pages for less-established entry-level people
— people who try using a sales page because they have to, not
because they want to.
And I thought, “hey, what if I tried that?” As a great fictitious man
once said, “we try
things. Occasionally they even work.”
So when my last company went out of
business, I put a
“hire me” page together. I had a little breathing room before
missing a paycheck and reasonable savings. Why not try it?
Yeah, Why Not Try It?
