How to Get a Job

Getting a job nowadays is not easy. It doesn´t matter how good your resume is and how hard you work on sending those job applications out – you simply can´t catch a break.

Well, here is what a Swedish guy, Linus Billqvist, did and it worked!

Linus Billqvist is 21 years old. He got tired on being unemployed and decided to do something different in his efforts to get a job. He bought a signboard – wrote with big black letters – “”Jag är jävligt trött på att vara arbetslös!” (Swedish) – which means something like: ” I am damn tired of being unemployed! ” – Went to a train station and held the sign up as people walked by and he got a job!

He got the idea from a man who wrote on the signboard that he cheated on his wife in order for her to forgive him. So, one day he bought a signboard and wrote: “I am damn tired of being unemployed! I can work a cash register; Yard Work; Will learn other jobs. Do you have a job for me? Linus – and his mobile phone number.

He was planning to stand at the train station few hours each day for a week but he didn´t need to do that. It only took him 2, 5 hours to get a job!

A woman from Hilton Hotels called him and gave him a job.

So, what do you think…would this work in your town? You got nothing to lose, right?
