Sign of the times

10 July 2018

What do you do when you have applied for over 100 jobs and not received even one nice rejection letter?



Well, aspiring accountant Kamran Hussain decided it was time to hit the road, or more literally to hit the capital’s railway stations.



Armed with 30 CV’s and a sign pleading for an entry level job, the Walthamstow-based graduate stood outside Liverpool Street and Cannon Street stations.



The following day the job offers started rolling in and he now works as a ‘transaction executive’!



Hussain admits that he only achieved low grades in his Kent University accounting and Finance degree, and this meant he always went to the bottom of the application file.



So it was time to think out of the box, and it seems to have worked!
