Student Stood Outside London Bridge Station With Sign Asking For Internship
Josué Bapeck who studies at Southampton University was spotted holding a cardboard sign asking for help in finding an internship in management consultancy.
The sign read: "Motivated Southampton University student seeking work experience in management consulting. Kindly take a picture and spread the word!
"'Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.'"
One man, who spotted Josué at the busy London station, took a picture of the student - as requested - and shared it on Twitter.
He posted it with the caption: "At London Bridge I passed this young man. I was in a rush couldn't see what his sign said. On my way back he was still here, I took time to read his post [and it] turns out he has had a hard time finding a job if anyone can help even just retweet this it can go a long way."
SK, a director of a record label, felt that he had to help the young man out in any way he could. Since sharing the image on Monday, the picture has gone viral, receiving more than 7,500 likes and 8,400 retweets.
One person responded to the tweet writing: "Please help him find a job by spreading this around. The world needs more actions like this".
Another commented: "I saw this guy yesterday on my way to the studio. I glanced at the sign and didn't properly take it in. Wish I'd have taken the time to speak to him. If employers really want their potentional hirings to show initiative, this is the embodiment of that. Hope he finds a job."
A third said: "I saw Josué around my uni campus always doing extra stuff and in the gym, good luck".
What a LAD.
