Jobless Adam Pacitti from the Isle of Wight spends last £500 on billboard in bid for work
AN unemployed graduate from the Isle of Wight has spent his last £500 on a billboard aimed at finding him a job.
Adam Pacitti, of Ryde, said he acted out of desperation to find work.
The 24-year-old, who gained a first class degree in media production at the University of Winchester, hired the billboard to promote his website employadam.com.
The site features a tongue-in-cheek video in which Mr Pacitti promotes his marketing skills.
In the video, he says: ''As you can see from my email inbox I have spent countless hours applying for jobs with no luck which is why I have launched employadam.com.
''I am looking for work in the ultra-competitive, cut-throat and slightly vacuous industry that is the media.''
He continues: ''So if I seem like your ideal candidate then please get in touch because, to be honest, I am getting desperate.''
His website and billboard have become popular on Twitter and he has received thousands of messages of support.
Mr Pacitti gained previous success with an internet campaign to find a girl he dreamed of who bore an uncanny resemblance to TV character Ugly Betty.
His search gained attention worldwide after it was revealed by the Daily Echo.
Mr Pacitti claims his website thegirlofmydreams.co.uk has had more than four million hits.
