A marketing graduate who landed his dream job after holding up a placard at Victoria station has gone back to the same spot to give others a helping hand.
22 year old Alfred Ajani posted the before and after picture on Twitter under the heading "Same spot - different sign". The picture has been re-tweeted hundreds of times and he has been inundated with requests for jobs on the social media site.
Mr Ajani landed a job at a recruitment company in the capital after holding up the original placard in August. He told ITV London at the time that, like many young graduates, he had struggled to find work after university - but the response to his unusual job advert had been "much better than expected", with even the offer of a position in Barcelona.
