Social Media has changed our lives in ways we couldn’t even imagine. It became a vital task in our everyday life, simply because it’s a great resource of “first-hand” information. But just when you thought you’ve heard it all, a friend of mine sent me this article…

He found the posting about the job through his now employers feed on the social media platform. He commented on it, and they replied back, and directed him to his own Instagram feed that contained his body of work.

After a few test haircuts, the rest as they say, is history.
