Man jogs for jobs

An unemployed man in England is taking an unusual approach to his job search – he’s jogging around the streets of London to get noticed by employers.

Liam Morriss, 24, runs approximately 10K per day wearing a t-shirt that says, “I’m a graduate, I’m unemployed and I’m jogging for jobs.”

According to an article on the News Shopper website, Morriss says he’s going to keep jogging until he can find a job. “I’m going to do this every day for as long as it takes,” he told the paper. “I’m looking for something new and I’m open to suggestions.”

He graduated from university in 2010 with a degree in music industry management, but has yet to find full time employment.

Why the unusual approach to job hunting? “Looking for jobs online was really tedious. You apply for so many and rarely hear back. It’s a bit disheartening so I thought I would rather try something else and get out there,” he told the paper.

“I’m hoping people will think I have thought of something new and I’m trying something different,” he added. “I’m doing it every day so I’m hoping it looks reliable and I’m willing to put in the effort to learn.”
