#DreamCandidate 2014 winner Maya has been very busy over the last month- attending interviews at fantastic organisations! Make sure you keep up to date with her progress, by simply following #HireMaya. But the runners-up have also impressed, with some very unique and creative CVs.

Maya’s video CV really impressed you all, but it wasn’t just video CV’s stealing the top spots. Csilla, an online marketing specialist, created her very own website for the competition, cleverly mimicking Google. Her entry came in third, with over 100 likes.

I have worked in almost every area of digital marketing, starting with social media, SEO, Google Ad Grants, PR, content marketing and so on, and I’m always looking to learn new things in other areas as well.
