We love a good PR stunt here at The Spin Alley, so the story of a desperate jobseeker performing a variety of attention grabbing stunts in order to find himself a job is right up our street.
Dan Conway calls himself the EXTREME job hunter and has set up a website to promote his stunts. So far, he has posted a video of his two-year-old daughter Lucy asking to ‘please get my daddy a job,’ delivered CVs hidden in party piñatas, posted himself for sale on ebay and sent donuts with offers to work for free.
His latest offering is an iPad mini for anyone who can help him land a job, which he will pay for using his first month wages.
He said: ‘My wife was just days away from giving birth to our second child Jack so it was a massive blow.
‘We were devastated but I was confident that I would find a job again quickly.
‘Anyone who’s been unemployed will tell you how awful it is. I have a beautiful family that I just want to provide for.
‘I know publicity stunts won’t get me a job, but may get the attention of the right person so I can prove I have the skills.’
Other stunts have included sending Monopoly money with his covering letters and a covering letter jokingly warning employers they need to employ more red heads by law and offering his services.
WE LOVE this guys style! Can you give him a job?
