About @Ajob4FloThion

After graduating in 2014, I spent a lot of time sending applications to companies that sometimes did not reply. I was frustrated and a bit hopeless. I was thinking to change something on my applications and remembered IKEA Russia promoting its new catalogue on Instagram.

How could I develop my personal brand and promote myself on Instagram? And an idea popped up in my mind…

On each board I “told my story” by depicting my environment, who I am creatively what I am passionate about; mountains, nature, skiing, cycling, running competition/challenges and sports in general.
On there, I featured myself, my professional aspirations, my skills, my career path, my hobbies and what inspires me as a sports lover (from the emotion procured towards sports marketing)
It represents a glimpse of what made who I am today, a taste of who is Florent Thion.

This project has come out only in 2017 just because I got hired in 2015 before it turned officially online. For now, I updated some boards but the main idea remains the same.

I made use of the tagging features to let the visitors travelling toward the different boards by clicking on the loupes and visiting each board.

All in all, I drew 24 boards, created 24 new email addresses and established  24 new Instagram accounts allocated to @AJob4FloThion! That constitutes a huge amount of work from the first reflection on what would feature me the most to splitting each board into squares of 612×612 pixels !!

 

 

About the author

My name is Florent Thion, I am French and I have been living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from September 2017. In France, I grew up in a small village in a National Park which made me turn into a genuine sports and nature enthusiast. A few years later, I got a master degree in communication in Montpellier (France).

I practised cross-country skiing in competition for 15 years and now I enjoy roaming the roads and pathways cycling or running. I am also interested in watching or trying all kind of sports.

In my spare time, I run a blog in French about marketing, digital, media, … into ice and snow sports. I manage as well two digital sports topics on the curation platform ScoopIt.

 

As a resident of Canada for the next years, I am seeking a job in sports, entertainment or tourism industries as a community manager/content manager/web editor or related fields.
