EXTREME JOB HUNTERS
A man who was so desperarate to find work he auctioned himself on eBay and wrestled in gravy has finally found a job.
Dan Conway tried everything he could think of to find employment, posting his efforts on a website to grab potential employers' attention.
Now, the 28-year-old from Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, has landed his dream job as a marketing executive in America.
Mr Conway lost his job a week before his second child was born last year. Despite applying for hundreds of posts, the university graduate was repeatedly turned down.
As a last resort the father-of-two set up The Extreme Job Hunter website in the hope of finding work.
His bizarre appeals for employment included walking around Newcastle wearing a billboard, and posting himself as for sale on eBay.
He even posted a pleading video from his three-year-old daughter Lucy begging: 'please get my daddy a job' on the website, but to no avail.
