I printed my resume in the car and parked in front of my dream job. (2023)


Join me on my UK Stand Up Tour 2021:www.maxfosh.co/

I know you're all hungry for a little roommate Dan in your life

Thanks for a crazy year... if you're feeling inspired, check out the @airrack podcast with @ColinandSamir



Come on, do you like your nickname? yes, I love him

Oh my god is that your resume? Yes, you like pants, don't you? So one radio entry, here it is, good man, it's getting popular.

Oh this is huge, hi Max Fosh, I am.

Alex Hayden Jones has been the leader of Radio One all my life.

I've always loved the idea that you could make your own fortune.

Say hello to your moment of glory.

For example, I was lucky that it all started by accident on YouTube.

Dm, some YouTubers I liked.

And then three months later.

We made a video together that was watched by millions of people around the world.

Now life has moved in 2020.

Good night.

Well, crisis is very difficult, especially when you work in creative industries, there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.

But I want to prove that there are directors like Air Rack who have shown that even in 2020 you can still grow and make a name for yourself.

His mantra is "high risk, high reward and work".

It was the biggest risk I ever took with video. He managed to grow from zero to 800,000 subscribers in 11 months, it's amazing.

Outside of YouTube, I've always had two goals: perform at a sold-out concert at London's Shepherds Bush Empire and work for the BBC.

Radio 1.

I've been working in comedy for a while now and I'm starting to polish the show more and more.

I never thought about how to differentiate myself from the big bosses at Radio One.

But then a thought occurred to me: would you like to tidy up all my clean places? I don't want to, but I'll help you.




My plan was very simple.

I would print my resume on the biggest sticker I could and stick it on the roof of my 999.

CC 2016, a shiny red Volkswagen app named Vinnie.

Then I would park the car in front of the Radio 1 studio for 24 hours and see what happens.

But before ordering stickers, I had to find the best place for the car.

So I'm going to Oxford Circus where the BBC is.

Radio 1 has all its studios.

They seem to find a place where I can park my car.

Oh, he's a good boy.

And my main problem is that it's over.

One is on Ox Street, which is basically a huge shopping street.

So I can't park on the main street.

So I need to find the closest one.

There is a place where there is paid and visible parking. Of course, there's no way to park here or here, but maybe that's where I found the entrance to the studio after a bit of curiosity, so that's the entrance to radio 1, right? yellow line. If I may, I will delve into the world of London for a moment, parking in the car park is legal.

Yellow line at night so planned to park my car overnight.

Right? Leaving the studio and the next morning.

At 7.30 he gets up and sits next to the car.

All day making sure I wasn't disturbing anyone and that I could move the car if a traffic cop showed up.

And when that plan ended, I was late for my tag meeting.

i like her name

What do we sell? I don't know, signs etc, nice and cozy.


You are.

In order to.

Yes, not so bad.


Oh my god it's huge, I hope it fits.

Yes, it's perfect.

Absolutely ridiculous.

I thought that the curriculum alone was not enough.

Also, I had to add something else to the car that would make it very difficult for the BBC to say no, right? We're done, we're done, so you're probably wondering what's wrong with the QR code.

The reason I put the QR code on the car is basically to get noticed.

I don't want to do this stunt rock.

They see the resume and say oh that's a great resume, let's present it in a way that I want to do it in a way that will make it the easiest thing in the world for them to say yes.

Then the QR code will take you here.

Hi radio, my name is Max Fosh, as you can see, I rented a studio today to showcase some content.

Tree, Second, Shop.

No kidding.

I saw that you recently removed one of my favorite sections of the Innuendo Bingo series.

So today I want to introduce you to a section called Task Life.

Every week I sit down with someone who wants to disconnect.

I don't know, a 1920s black-and-white romantic comedy set in the suburbs of Stevenage will do the chores of life I still haven't figured out, sorting through all my clean socks, untangling headphones and contacts.

Let me give you a quick taste.

He's my roommate, but he's also an actor.

And today he will play the role of an actor.


Max Hayden, I am.

Well, did you make your own? Yes Yes.

You were only in the movie, but not.

You, yes, big.

Jennifer Anderson was there.

She was, yes.

Mike Myers, Mike Myers, yes, Mike Myers, it wasn't.


In short, he is, yes, he is a little toned down in Shrek.

Good to see you can't keep up with the big guys anymore.

no, not like you

so big

boy yes


Dan, would you like to clean all my stains? I don't want to, but I'll help you.



Do you like half ball or full ball, is it full ball, baby, is it soccer?

You like pants, don't you, when are you done with that big, big movie you made?

Yes, is there a wrap party? Yes Yes.

You're talking about Jennifer Aniston.

I i.

He goes to graduation parties because, yes, he drinks.

Gas explosion.

I should have thought of that as this place is sketchy and especially conducive to conversation.

No, it's not. I've never seen anyone eat so many twiglets in one night, 22 lb 16p, one euro, three cents and you're Chinese, I just put one in and change.

The second is when you are organizing press events or have a conference call.

Yes, you generally get a lot of the same stuff.


you have the same questions

Yes, is it a bit different? Oh yes.

Have you ever done it in compression stockings with Max Flush? Look, it's the original.

Thanks for the rating.

My actor half and three, yes, it turned out.


Thank you very much.

Would you like to do it? oh? Want to tell your loved ones where to find a job as an actor? Of course.

I didn't have a job this year.

Your Instagram was very difficult, what is it, don't worry.

Because I didn't have a job this year.

Just pictures of my roommates.

Can't wait for Radio 1 to show some of its content online.

And hey, I was never sure that too much kale was too much kale.

And I will not be offended.

If you don't want to start everyday life, but you want to send me on a big weekend, send me to Glastonbury, send me to the streets.

And I definitely promise you great content. Send me an e-mail and let's talk.

Then the car was ready and looked red.

And the presentation was on YouTube as an unlisted video, meaning it was only viewable if a QR code was scanned before I went to Radio One.

I wanted to show Dan.

My skillful work has brought you the gift below.

Yes and

My God, this is your resume.

I ran the great north above me because I can.

So when they scan the open QR code in the browser, I end up on YouTube, and that's quite a dessert.

I rented a studio to bring you content.

This is amazing.

I've never used the QR except when I'm happily having coffee with Dan, I went to park my car in front of the Radio so I park outside.

The radio, one of mine, is now 5, 30 years old.

So basically I'm going to sit here until 6:30 when I can legally park on one yellow line. I'm not sure if you've ever sat in your car thinking about what you're going to do.

But all I could think of was this.

When we were young, why could we never turn on car lights when it was dark? Honestly, I can see it pretty well.

And after exhausting life's biggest questions, it arrived at 6:30.

So that was my tip to go, well, it's on my resume, radio entry.

I think it's time to go home.

I've already had dinner.

It's 10:30.

The car has been parked there for four hours.


Now when I got out of the car, the video had 20 views.

So if there are more than 20 views then I know people scanned the QR code. There are currently 24 views, not the best return.

I got a tweet from a band member who said he saw it and thought it was really good.

But I don't think they work for Radio One.

So I'm going to sleep and hope more people saw this, right? It's the next morning, 7:30.

So the car was there for 13 hours and now it has 42.

So 22 people watched it, no email, still here.

No tickets.

Well, you might wonder why when I put my resume on the roof of the car, it's really easy because that's why the car is all office.

So when you look down and look at a car, what do you see to determine the perfect CV about it? Now I have to be honest with you: Things weren't looking too good at this point.

Um, the level of interaction was one guy taking a picture and then shaking his head, um, and another guy telling me he works for News Night.

So he couldn't help me.

Thanks dude.

So yeah, I was pretty depressed, Greg's, a baguette in my hand and a metaphorical egg all over my face.

It's show business, baby.

But I didn't want to give up, no, that's not what we do with the Max Foss channel.

I had two more plans.

One of them was sending a text message to the BBC.

Give me the number and say the car crashed.

And the second was to turn to social networks.

I really wanted this to work without using my so called online influence.

So I turned to Twitter, my Twitter is not a hub of activity.

So I felt if I tweeted anything that was going to happen, it would be an organic reaction. Honestly, I had no option, and sometimes in life you just have to get lucky.

And so, on this occasion, luck fell into my lap in the form of Nick Grimshaw.

One of the biggest hosts on the channel, Nick, hi.


That's mine.

It's my job.

Do you like it? Nick, yes, I love it.

Thanks dude.

I think it's an extreme invention.

Thanks dude.

Have a nice day, sir. Grimshaw nods.

Everything clicks into place, gaining more and more grip.

The tweet went viral and was commented on by the biggest names in the industry.

All the presenters' musicians called the BBC to speak to the floppy disk.

Stylish guy over there.

I'm thinking about it now as the Twitter view count continues.

Scott Mills just tweeted about it and said, "Big buzz."

Thank you very much.

Sir Scott, I don't want to stay any longer.


I got home.

And soon after I got back, Radio One boss Allard, Hayden Jones, yeah, yeah, very soon, um, I just got home, they contacted me.

I was just tweaking the lights and cameras because I basically just saw Radio One boss Numero Uno, the biggest bell in the box, just tweeted a video response to a tweet saying I'm upset the car is off.

Radio 1, I haven't seen it yet.

This is basically a key factor in determining if it worked.

What if they want to get the most out of their lives, right? leave us.

answer hello

Maks Fosh, to and.

Alex Hayden Jones, Head of Radio.

First of all, wow, as you can see, I also have your QR code and video, boom.

Second, the angles.


Come on Alex

Thank you for your offer.

It was great to see what you could do and meet an unemployed actor and radio buddy. I'm afraid Dan is still looking for a job.

And I just offered 46 new presenters a spot on Radio One between Christmas and January.

But I find it disappointing.

A disappointing start, but 12 seconds to the end of the video and the proposal to show our content online.

Interesting, so let's talk, p.s. you should definitely follow the social networks of the station where you want to work the next day.

We made a 15 minute call.

I've achieved what I set out to do, which is that just a little bit of graphics can take you to amazing places, not just a big stunt.

To be inspired, you need to show why you are the right person for the job.

Please watch the episode aired on the Colin and Smear Podcast.

This will inspire you, Alice.

And I'm currently talking about working for Radio One.

Hope to see you at the station soon.
