A graduate who found a job after standing in a railway station handing out his CV returned to the same spot a year later to recruit workers to his new company.
Alfred Ajani took to the concourse of Waterloo station in London after getting no reply when filling in job applications. Now after being employed by a recruitment firm, he’s returned to the same place to advertise positions on his team.
Alfred received a number of job offers in marketing, business and recruitment after his unique method received widespread praise on social media last year when a commuter spotted him holding a sign which said: “Marketing Graduate (BA Hons 2:1 Coventry Uni) – Ask for a CV.”
Within two weeks of the method, he took a role at recruitment consultancy The Asoria Group, who are located just 100 yards from the station.
Alfred when back to Waterloo yesterday to look to expand the company’s workforce, and posted a picture of himself in August next to a new photo of himself holding a new sign stating: “Now I’m hiring”.
Alfred told the Daily Mail: ‘It felt great to be back at the same place and be looking for people who, like me a few months ago, are looking for a good job.
‘I’ve loved my role since taking it and there hasn’t been one minute where I’ve regretted my decision.’
He added: ‘I didn’t want to be back looking for a job again, or standing in the station for a second time, so I’m really pleased with how it has gone.
‘The company is expanding and we’re looking to take people on to the desk where I’m working so we are now searching for graduates, people in the same position I was last year. We’ve got around 20 vacancies.
