Man Really Struggles To Get A Job Because He Has 'DEVAST8' Tattooed On His Face
Finding a job is tough enough as it is, these days.
There's a number of websites which aim to help you, however after spending hours, maybe even days, applying for every job under the sun, you're told the same thing: "not enough experience for this role."
Basically, you have to have experience to get the required experience to get a job. It's a ball ache, and a lot of people will concur that it's just a case of throwing enough shit until it sticks.
Mark Cropp, a teenager from New Zealand, is one of those really struggling to get a career going, leaving him devastated.
On this occasion it's not a case of his work experience letting him down, but rather his appearance. Half of his face is covered in a tattoo, which he got after drinking home brew behind bars in Christchurch, New Zealand, Daily Mail reports.
The word 'DEVAST8' decorates the lower half of Cropp's face, almost like an inked beard. It's become an obstacle while searching for a job that can help provide for his partner and daughter.
On the Auckland Jobs Facebook page the ex-inmate, who served two years for armed robbery, posted a picture of himself as well as a rough cover letter.

"Any questions please ask me."
Sadly his plea is yet to bring any success, as a few places have told him they wouldn't consider him for any role.
"One employment place said to me: 'I wouldn't employ you with that on you face, I wouldn't even take a second look at you'," he told NZ Herald. "I've had other people that just shrugged and laughed at me."
People on Facebook, however, are supporting Mark through his tough ride, wishing him luck on his mission. Others, erm, haven't been so supportive.
