A lighter moment…. but maybe something that reminds us more of how keen candidates are worth their weight in gold…
A Salford man secured a job by standing at a road junction in Manchester advertising his availability for work on a sandwich board. Jason Fruen had been made redundant five months ago. He spent several hours on two days last week standing at Junction 9 of the M60 near the Trafford Centre in Manchester, before receiving a job offer.
The sandwich board he wore around his neck stated: “Mechanical maintenance engineer seeking employment” and also contained his mobile number.
Mr Fruen said: “I’ve actually had a company offer me a position. I’ve had to have an interview and they’ve offered me a position.”
He said he has to go and finalise the terms and conditions of his new job today.
He said: “I think we’re going to see a lot more people adopting this way of looking for work. I’ve still got a mortgage to pay, that’s why I was out there doing it. I’ve still got the cost of living and my bills to pay and I needed a job to do it.”
