Dylan Lopez, originally from Albi, a commune in the Tarn department of France, had been searching for a job in his home without luck since graduating.

The 22-year-old, who is an architect specialised in spatial planning, had started to despair before he came up with his innovative plan to get a potential employers’ attention.

He made posters featuring a photo of a cute kitten which looked like an appeal for a lost pet, and then set about putting them up around town.

But the text under the picture does not describe the missing animal, but instead gave potential employers a brief summary of his skills.

Lopez wrote about his skills and personality traits in a small presentation of himself.

At the end of the text he invited employers to request his CV and included his e-mail address for potential employers to get in touch with him.

Passersby could even take home his phone number by pulling out paper strips attached to the poster.
