Stark Industries

Out of all the movies coming up in the next year, Iron Man 2 is one (of a few) that I don't think really needs a viral to build any buzz. But then again, anything set in the Marvel Universe has a lot of good viral potential, so why not? Marvel made an announcement today on their website about Stark Industries accepting job applications. All you need to do is visit this site: starkindustriesnow.com and click on the "Join Stark Industries" button. There's not too much more found there (yet), except an amusing press release written by Tony Stark on his drink napkin. "Pepper, please post exactly as is!" Oh that Tony Stark!

Stark Industries Memo

Who knows if anything else will be added to that site over the next few months, but I can say I'm honestly excited for this viral to really take off. As I mentioned, the Marvel Universe (or in this case, the Iron Man universe) has a lot of depth to it that can be used to create a good viral ARG. The only thing is that I doubt this is being run by 42 Entertainment, the only truly amazing viral company out there (who did the Tron Legacy viral at Comic-Con). Anyway. if you think you've got what it takes to become an employee of Stark Industries, we suggest you sign up and keep us informed on the inner workings of Mr. Stark's corporation.

    Stark Industries may be the only company hiring right now. I guess they haven't been affected by the recession.

    Okay we're going to need some high IQ guys to answer those 'Experience Assessment' questions. Those things are a bit over my head, lol.

    "What term describes the superposition of two or more waves resulting in a new wave pattern?" It's 'interference'.

    And at a guess, I'd say the answer for "A plane flying past a non-moving observer has kinetic energy in the reference frame of this observer, the same plane has how much kinetic energy in the reference frame which moves with the plane?" would be 'None'. Physics ain't my strong point though ;)

    Hopefully a few of you stopped by the Marvel booth at Comic-Con like I did. On Saturday, following the Iron Man 2 panel, a nifty "Stark Industries" business card was handed out. It has the website starkindustriesnow.com/employment listed on it.

    Does anyone know what we should expect from this? Maybe they'll let the "employees" see some exclusive pics or footage ... ?
  • TheSaint
    Erik I'm with you on that. I applied hoping that they send something back. Yeah I know it's fake but with how hard in is to find employment I would take a fake job that offered something opposed to sitting and waiting on the numerous apps I out, to hear something form those.

    I got a return e-mail from the online application. So I went to comic con, got the cool clear business card with the Stark Industries logo and web info. I went home and filled out the application to the best of my knowledge. with all my real info. and a bout 2 weeks later I got: Hey there! Thank you so much for being one of the first people to apply for a job at Stark Industries. So far, the response has been incredible. You are among the best and brightest and your interest in joining our ranks is truly appreciated. Already we have an overwhelming number of applicants and we plan to take our time thoroughly investigating each one. It may be a long process, but it is the only way to ensure that we find the absolute best candidates to work at Stark Industries. We will contact you soon as we narrow down our selection. All the best, Kay Baker
