CareerBuilder.com debuted its new 2009 marketing campaign with a commercial during this year's Super Bowl. The commercial consisted of numerous unsavory work related situations that repeated themselves multiple times, just like in real life, and made workers think "it's probably time" to look for a new job. To view the commercial, go to http://www.careerbuilder.com/tv.
Building on the commercial's success and theme, CareerBuilder.com is announcing a new online video contest to identify the most outrageous reason why someone would think "it's probably time" to look for a new job. The winning video will receive $5,000.
