Go to the used furniture store and buy a few old aluminum framed wooden seat chairs like those we sat on in grade school. They’ll cost you about $5 each. Next buy a box large enough to put the chair in. Now tape your résumé to the seat of the chair with a note that says, “You can’t say you don’t have a chair for me know”
This works well in engineering and advertising firms, especially where you have already been given the brush-off because they “don’t have the space or don’t have any extra chairs”, which is a common brush off in the technology world.
If you don’t get the job, try getting the chair and box back so you can re-use it.
When you go in to pick it up ask the hiring manager if he/she knows someone else who can use a high energy creative type like you.
