Jake Gyllenhaal’s Louis Bloom is an ambitious young man looking for a job in a tough market. The main character of director Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut, Nightcrawler, Bloom will eventually fall into the world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles and get entangled in the city’s seedy underbelly. But while audiences wait to see that in the film (out Oct. 17), Bloom is still pounding the pavement, as it were.

In an unconventional promo for the pic, Bloom has even gone as far as putting out a Craigslist ad and a video resume to bolster his opportunities. Check out Gyllenhaal’s slightly unhinged hero nearly begging for a job, using all the clichés he can muster in the spot below.

Bill Paxton and Rene Russo also star in Nightcrawler.
