'Extreme jobhunter' turns to stunts to find work

A graduate was so desperate to get a job he resorted to eighteen unusual stunts to try to get some kind of work.

Dan Conway, 28, auctioned himself on eBay, sent pizzas and doughnuts to employers alongside his CV, and even gravy wrestled at the side of a road with EMPLOY ME written on his bare chest.

However the stunts all paid off for the creative advertising graduate - as he was headhunted by Vitamins.web to become their marketing manager.

Dan told BBC Radio 5 live's Drive: "I tried all the traditional methods but... I wasn't hearing anything back and I thought, 'let's just do something really interesting and see what reaction I get.'"
