How Jobless Paddy landed a job with this billboard
Féilim Mac An Iomaire spent over £1700 on a billboard to beg companies to save him from emigration. And it worked.
After spending nine months looking for work in Ireland, Féilim Mac an Iomaire made a tremendous gamble. Luckily it paid off tremendously.
Féilim spent his life savings, €2000 (£1770), on a billboard in Dublin that asked companies to save him from emigration. The story gained him global press attention and within days he was attending job interviews. Just three weeks after the billboard went up, Paddy Power offered Féilim a job as Communications Executive. But there were plenty of other companies after him too.
