When Jessops finally closed 187 stores last week, more than 1,350 people lost their jobs. Now it has emerged that five enterprising staff members who worked at the Warrington store have taken an unusual approach to finding new positions. They have put their photos in the window of the branch, with the words "Five unemployed and loyal staff seeking work. Can you help?"

But does this sort of wacky appeal tend to work, or are you better off with a traditional approach?
