One important component of running a good business is ensuring that employees actually want to work for you. Chief executive officer Ryan Holmes has that element covered on all bases with his company, HootSuite.

Last night Vancouver-based HootSuite was named the Best Company to Work For in BC among companies with over 100 employees. No wonder the Canadian social media darling sees over 650 resumes per month.

Fortunately for those not yet employed at HootSuite, the company is still hiring like crazy: HootSuite grew from 80 employees to 230 this year, tripling its workforce in less than 12 months, and plans to grow more in 2013 thanks to a bigger office.

It seems like everyone wants to work there—and some people will do anything to make their application stand out from the crowd. Check out these five strange but effective job applications that HootSuite has received.
