A New Zealand woman who wrote about her struggles getting a job in London has now reportedly seen an influx of job offers.
Twenty-five-year-old Alex Hazlehurst first wrote about her struggles a few days ago, focusing on how huge the population of London was in comparison to New Zealand and how hard it was for her to makes contacts in the media industry.
She wrote: "I'm talented. I'm hard-working. I'm blonde. And I can charm the pants off the 60-something-year-old Italian who makes me my daily coffee... So I may be many things, but in London, I'm irrelevant."
Hazlehurst turned a few heads online with her piece, especially the title – leading many to question her right to complain about the struggles of finding a job.
Regardless, the New Zealand Herald is now reporting that Hazlehurst has been inundated with job offers. Everything's coming full circle, it seems.
Hazlehurst told the NZ Herald that "there had been job offers, families offering a place to stay in the southwest of England if she needed a break, and Kiwis living in London who just wanted to meet for a coffee to chat".
So there ya go, it ain't all bad – especially if you're blonde, talented, and hard-working.
