The Phillies fan, who made an empty recording, uses viral catch to promote LinkedIn’s job search
Now that it’s out-of-the-box thinking.
Often, fans who go viral in baseball games and gain 15-minute popularity typically don’t use those moments to catapult them to higher star levels.
That’s not the case with Phillies fan (and Penn State graduate) Patrick Gallagher, who took an empty hand on a ball that hit 97 mph in a Phillies-Mets matchup.
Gallagher secured the ball and even managed to keep the snack in his hand, but that’s not the most spectacular thing: Gallagher is using his brand new reputation … to try to work it out.
He posted the video on LinkedIn, sharing a short message:
My name is Patrick Gallagher, and I’m a Phillies fan who made that catch in baseball on Sunday night.
I am currently in the process of looking for a new position. I am a recent Penn State Grad, I have a degree in Corporate Communication.
I want all contractors on LinkedIn to know that I’m looking for all the opportunities that are “successful”.
Gallagher’s famous catch occurred on May 2 in the Phillies-Mets game, although the catch was a highlight of the game, as the Phillies fell 8-7 to the Mets.
Whether it’s something in CorpCom or an outside place in a small league system, someone will get that job.
