A 63-year-old British man has secured a job after waiting outside a train station holding a sign and giving out his CV. Clad in a full suit with a big smile, Trevor Walford, held up a sign with the words "I would like to work. Please feel free to take a CV."

According to BBC, Walford worked at Buckingham Palace as a butler from the age of 15 years old. He has had a long career in the hospitality industry and for the past 16 years worked as a restaurant manager aboard a cruise ship.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, Trevor had unfortunately lost his job. Thanks to his determination, he has received an influx of messages on social media with job offers. Trevor took to social media to talk about his experience and has since received two job interviews.

YEN.com.gh took to social media to see what people were saying about Trevor underneath the article from the BBC.

@George59447771 tweeted:

"Persistence pays off, well done."

@w_kirst said:

"Thrilled to see this has worked for you. You are an asset to any employer and today’s online application culture does not let people see this. Good luck."

In other positive job news, YEN.com.gh rib-cracking photos have hit social media as some Ghanaians took to Twitter to 'honour' Dr UN, the organizer of the supposed fake Kofi Annan-UN Awards.

As would be recalled, many top Ghanaian celebrities and icons were awarded on August 28, 2020, at the Alisa Hotel in Accra for their outstanding roles in society.

As it turned out, checks made by some internet users have indicated that the award scheme was not credible and people have been reacting to that development wildly.
