Studies by experts find StopPress readers are better than most people

HB-xmas-greetingRecent studies have shown and all experts agree: StopPress readers are much more intelligent and good looking than other people.

The same studies and experts also confirmed that this particular Christmas greeting being sent out by the team at StopPress, NZ Marketing and HB Media is likely to be up to three times more sincere than those sent out by other companies.

We think our cherished readers deserve a longer holiday than everyone else, so, as a gift to you, this will be the last post until the next decade. But fear not, for all the marcomms news, gossip and slander you so desperately crave will be back on air on 11 January.

Extremely hearty thanks to our gold sponsors TVNZ, The Media Counsel, TBWA\, Perceptive, Flying Fish, Ubiquity, Orange Box and Adshel and our silver sponsors Omnigraphics, and IDC photographers. We hope you receive many scorched almonds for your good deeds.

And similarly hearty thanks to all the readers, writers, lovers, haters, commentors, non-commentors, emailers, press releasers, supporters and anyone else in the industry who's helped to make StopPress such a rip-roaring success. May this be the start of a beautiful friendship, may your yaks be fertile and may you survive almost entirely on sausages over the silly sausage season.

Our undying love,
Team StopPress

Kiwi entrepreneur looks to shake up the recruitment market with video CVs

Earlier this month, a young Auckland professional made headlines for using Facebook to try and land his dream job. Edward McKnight used ads on the social media site to target ASB staff as a way of applying for the role of youth and innovation sponsorship manager at the bank. And while McKnight has yet to be offered a job at ASB, it’s a sign that the traditional recruitment process of sending in a CV and crossing your fingers may be in for a shake-up. Hoping to do just that is the new recruitment platform PreviewMe. Set to have its beta version go live early next month, the website hopes to reduce the pain points of both candidates and employers by introducing video to the recruitment process.
