An unemployed university leaver who took part in a
well-publicised art project in London in order to promote the
skills he had to offer has now been offered a graduate job.
Using Anthony Gormley's One & Other installation on the fourth
plinth in Trafalgar Square, University of Swansea graduate Alex
Kearns displayed a blown-up version of his CV to passers-by and the
media watching the stunt.
The International Business Development Group, which is based in
London, took notice of the frustrated degree-holder by offering a
sales executive position to the 23-year-old after a successful
Alex said of the unusual tactic: "In the current climate you have
to work hard to stand out from the crowd. I saw this as a golden
opportunity to sell myself."
Fellow graduates from the University of Derby recently eschewed the
competitive graduate job market by setting up their own businesses,
according to the Derby Telegraph.
