‘Jobless Paddy’ - Féilim Mac An Iomaire
The unemployed 26 year old graduate also rented a billboard – two years before Adam had a similar idea in England. Mac An Iomaire rented a billboard for €2,000 asking for someone to employ did so he wouldn’t have to emigrate.
“Funnily enough the idea came after I joked with a friend that the only chance I had of getting a job was by putting up a billboard. A couple of hours later I was convinced that it would work.”
The response was overwhelming, Féilim said: “I ended up having over 60 interviews and within a month I was sifting through dozens of job offers.” He finally took a job with Paddy Power where he continues to work as a PR Manager.
