Diesel launched an interesting campaign earlier this month. Diesel seems to enjoy challenging the ordinary and the conformity that is flooding social networks because again this time it’s not the usual job application that you find on LinkedIn, the position is actually of a Chair Executive Officer. This time neither an MBA degree nor financial skills will serve the purpose, “first of all, you have to be good at sitting,” says Diesel’s founder. Choosing a CEO is serious stuff. It involves skills, responsibilities and above all knowledge. Therefore, Renzo Rosso sends a message to the people of the Internet: “Our CEO has left, leaving an empty space in our hearts, but most importantly an empty chair.” The applicants will have to showcase their indisputable ability to sit in a way that is absolutely different from others through a picture or a video to be uploaded on Diesel’s Facebook page. The selected candidate will spend a week as the Chair Executive Officer at the DIESEL Headquarters, Italy. Occupying the most important chair in the company! Let us hope for the sake of the winner that her/his management is such a success that the brand decides to employ them full time!!     Release and Image Credits: PR- DIESEL / Reliance Brands Limited
