This student was spotted earlier this week holding up a sign at a busy Brisbane intersection which read “EMPLOY ME!”  

On the other side of the sign, the student, later identified by news.com.au as Sean Anderson, had written “FULL TIME STUDENT NEEDS A JOB! CALL SEAN” along with his phone number.

The 24-year-old told the news website he is hoping to join the Australian Police Force after graduation, but is in need for a job now to tide him over.

“I’m not working at all, I’ve got a bit of money that I’ve saved but I’m running out and I need to pay for rent and food,” he told news.com.au.

Anderson’s stunt has garnered him a bit of fame among employers and recruiters, but he said he is still looking for the right fit.

“I’ve called a number of them back, but being a full-time student it is difficult to have flexibility,” he said.
