Teen Advertises Himself On eBay

A teenager in the UK has applied for over 600 jobs after finishing A-Levels, saying that he has decided to look for a job because he cannot afford to go to university. However, we all know how important paper qualification is, and so, he has not received any interest... that is, until he listed himself on eBay.

eBay does not allow listing of this manner, but teenager, Josh Butler, still managed to get the interests from prospective employers, while he claims would not have happened if not for eBay.

It is still worrisome, though, as it looks like the offers that he had been getting are low level, low paying jobs. I hope he doesn't regret his decision of not continuing with his tertiary education. I am walking down this road and I know how difficult things could be without paper qualification.
