A refugee, who recently graduated as a space engineer from a prestigious London university, has garnered a lot of attention on social media after his interesting career hunting technique went viral. The digital manager of the International Rescue Committee’s (Europe) Mary Engleheart met Mohammed while exiting the London Underground.
In an attempt to help him out, Engleheart tweeted out a picture of Mohamed, holding a poster giving details about his education and the work profile he is interested in. In her tweet, she wrote, “I met Mohamed coming out of the tube at Canary Wharf this morning. He came to the UK as a child refugee and has two degrees in Space Engineering. He’s looking for a JOB IN FINANCE. Please RT! DM me for his CV if you want to hire someone smart who thinks outside the box.”

This seems to be a new trend. It’s difficult to get a job for many graduates, learning how to apply for jobs in the modern market is hard enough. If this results in a job offer good for him but I feel for the other graduates who struggle to pass the pre-screening and interviews.
