1. Roll around on roller skates handing out your CV
This has actually happened. Post-recession a man went on a bit of a roller skate tour around the estate handing out CVs in a bid to secure himself a new 'roll'.
2. Sandwich board
Again, this has been done many times, but one business administration under-graduate secured a job with RBS in 2014 after he stood with the board outside Canary Wharf Tube station that read; “You have the ability to kick-start my career in banking. Talk to me.”

3. Slip your CV into one of the free newspapers (including The Wharf, cough cough)
And another one which has been done. A teenager left his CV in copies of the Evening Standard last year in the hope one reader may be his next boss. We never heard back if he found a job though.
4. Start a ‘read my CV and hire me’ pop-up
Everyone else seems to be doing it and they’re getting weirder and weirder every minute, with east London seeming to be the home of the pop-up. Blobfish are making their name through the mini stalls, so why shouldn’t you?
5. Offer your services for free - as in embark on an internship
This is possibly a better way to show what you're made of - as you’ll be demonstrating your work skills, rather than your ability to stand outside in the British weather for long periods handing out leaflets (although the latter is not to be sniffed at).
