Nigerian graduate who got job by standing at London train station with sign, now hiring

Alfred Ajani, the Nigerian graduate who got a job by standing around a train station in London holding up a sign advertising himself (read here) has made it..and now, he's hiring. Alfred who got hired by a recruitment firm, the Astoria Group, returned to the same spot where he once stood looking for a job in August 2014, but this time he was there to advertise positions on his team.

Alfred returned to the same spot on Jan. 22nd with a different sign that read 'Now, I'm hiring'
"It feels good to be putting something back and I’m hoping to take the brand to universities over the next year,’ he told Mail Online.
The 22 year old Marketing and PR Projects Manager has been given the responsibility of looking for new employees for his company as it begins an expansion.

Very inspiring.
I distributed mine at Yaba railway, at oshodi railway, at BRT bust station in Obalende and at different companies in VI and Ikeja. Yet no single phone call or email.
Sad indeed. Nigeria I hail thee.
Its not like I am not smart, hardworking or I didn't graduate well.
I wish I were in the UK so he would have hired me. I'm sick and tired of staying without a job.
Please whoever has a decent job I could do to keep sane should pls send me an email
