    It’s no secret that many college students today are struggling to find decent jobs after graduation. The market is simply not the same as it once was.

    One of these struggling graduates is 22-year-old Alfred Ajani, who’s applied to more than 300 jobs since graduating with a marketing degree earlier this summer. He’s been completely unsuccessful — until now.

    Ajani decided to put his marketing skills to good use by holding up a sign advertising himself at the U.K’s Waterloo Station. Why did he pick this particular station, you ask? Many big company bosses commute into the city of London through the Waterloo Station. The result? He’s been bombarded with interview offers.

    The man recently did an interview with DailyMail UK and had this to say:

    ‘I realized that there are thousands of students out there using the same old methods of applying for jobs online and through recruitment agencies and so I thought I’d try something different.

    ‘I got up early and went to the station. At first people just looked at me but after about 10 minutes people starting stopping and talking. They said they’d never seen anything like it before and were really impressed.

    ‘One woman worked in advertising and took a CV and another guy ran back from his train and said he’d walked past but had started thinking and might have something for me.’

    This is initiative that most people wouldn’t even dream of taking. We’ve all got a lot of learn from this gentleman. If you want it bad enough, you’ll eventually get it.
