24 People Who Applied for the World's Toughest Job Were In for Quite a Surprise

The World's Toughest Job

A brand's great gotcha videos

Here's a pretty cool project from Mullen for a client we won't immediately reveal, lest we spoil the surprise.
(Scroll down to the bottom of credits, or watch the video to find out.)

The Boston agency posted this job listing online for a "director of operations" position at a company called Rehtom Inc. The requirements sounded nothing short of brutal:

• Standing up almost all the time
• Constantly exerting yourself
• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week
• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary
• No vacations
• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and other holidays
• No time to sleep
• Salary = $0

The job ad got 2.7 million impressions from paid ad placements. Only 24 people inquired. They interviewed via webcam, and their real-time reactions were captured on video.  Check out what happened below. It's worth watching to the end.

Affordable Care Act Plan Cancellation Update

 

President Obama spoke to the nation on November 14, 2013 confiding that Americans may be able to keep their individual insurance plans for one more year. 

In response, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a notice to the various state Insurance Commissioners with recommended changes. It is now up to the states to decide on whether to allow these changes, and the carriers on whether or not to implement them.

Learn more about the recommendations and how they impact both individuals and small businesses.
