NEW DELHI, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Do you Really Think That Your "Career" can Happen by Chance? This is too Naive for Anyone to Believe! Using This Sensitization as the Core, TimesJobs.com has Launched a New Brand Campaign - "A Career Doesn't Happen by Chance" so "Don't leave Your Career to Chances"

The "Take Charge of your Career" campaign has gone live just prior to the Union Finance Budget 2013-14 because this is a time where policy decisions affect each and every person and only those who have taken charge of their careers will be able to weather the unpredictability usually surrounding the Budget.

The first leg of this campaign has been released by sponsoring the Union Budget 2013 on EconomicTimes.com with a high impact TimesJobs.com logo present as partner sponsor on the complete EconomicTimes.com Masthead for the next 3 weeks.

Amit Jain, Business Head, TimesJobs.com explains, "The campaign has two objectives: to actively engage with both active and passive jobseekers and sensitize them not to leave their careers to chance, but to actively take charge of it. The other associated objective is to relate TimesJobs.com's career growth planning portfolio services, such as CareerPlay, JobBuzz, StepAhead, TechGig, etc. as enablers and facilitators of swift career progression."

The user insight that activated the need for TimesJobs.com's campaign was that, a lot of times people do not actively plan out their careers but expect things to work out automatically which leaves them vulnerable to many adverse variables and external factors.

The creative leap on the insight was through the use of devices that symbolize uncertainty. For instance, a pair of dice or a slot machine at a casino where people are not in control of the outcome and can only sit back and hope for the best. The use of these devices in the creatives drives home the point that leaving the result to chance may or may not work in their favor. Thereby inferring they must take charge of their careers and control the outcome.

As the campaign unfolds, the target audience (TG) will be exposed to many similar high impact marketing presence both around Union Budget on ET and otherwise on large portals including TOI and others. The campaign shall be further amplified using print, mailers, and social media.
