  • Alfred Ajani unsuccessfully applied for 300 jobs after graduating last year
  • He took to the concourse of Waterloo station to speak to city bosses
  • The 22-year-old was inundated with offers after he was pictured on Twitter
  • Now he has returned to the same spot in a bid to find workers for his firm

A graduate who impressed bosses by standing in a railway station handing out his CV has returned to the same spot to recruit workers to his new company.

Determined Alfred Ajani was so sick of filling in job application forms and getting no reply, he took to the concourse of Waterloo station in London to come face-to-face with city high-flyers.

After he was snapped up by a recruitment firm, he’s now returned to the same place where he once stood to advertise positions on his team.

Alfred, 22, received widespread praise on social media last August when a commuter spotted him holding a sign which said: ‘Marketing Graduate (BA Hons 2:1 Coventry Uni) – Ask for a CV.’

The south Londoner’s unique method of finding work paid off and he received a number of offers of jobs in business, marketing and recruitment.

Two weeks after his job-seeking stunt, he took a role with recruitment consultancy The Asoria Group, which are based just one hundred yards from the station.

Alfred is now part of a team looking to expand the company’s workforce and went back to Waterloo yesterday as part of his search for new employees.
