After spending six months sending out his resume and cover letter to different prospective employers, Nathan Campbell was frustrated his job search hadn’t landed one for him yet. The 22-year-old from Scotland says he either got no response or a negative one, so he decided to change tactics.
Campbell grabbed some cardboard and made a sign reading “Please give me a job!” That strategy might sound questionable, after standing on a street corner with his job sign for a half hour, he had five different business cards from interested folks. And by the end of the week, he landed a construction job.
“The whole sitting in the house and going through the same stuff every day drove me up the walls and I thought I had to do something,” Campbell explains. “Just making that one small move made a massive difference. I would definitely tell people to put themselves out there.”
