Tread with caution.
Even if done extraordinarily well it will lose the recruiter’s interest if you don’t include metrics that they can use to justify an interview with you to the client/boss. If you can prove that you are both fun, meticulous, and effective, great, you may get an initial interview.
It’s a negative to zero probability changer (relative to your current profile). But for 1-2 viewers it could be overwhelmingly positive. How serious are you about finding those 1-2 people who can appreciate you? Are they able to afford you?
Who cares about what happens on average. On average work sucks. But if you’re going for out of the ballpark, prepare yourself to strike out. A lot. Prepare by making everything you touch absolutely impeccable and by chasing every opportunity you can.
For perspective – I am not a creative agency, but a teacher with heavy R&D in crazy stuff (creativity very necessary) – I would give you a shot, but the moment you show signs of disrespect to our necessary corporate protocols or poor judgment with staff during in the interview process, I’d stop the interview on the spot and walk you out. There’s room for zany, but it comes with a price. I’d be even more cautious with hiring you than someone with comparable stats who had a regular resume/interface. Can you thrive under the microscope?
Best wishes!
