A 16-year-old teenager with Down’s syndrome has been overwhelmed with job offers after he shared an honest cover letter asking for employment. Addison Quinn from Erina, in New South Wales, wanted to gain some work experience and took help from his mother Lisa to write a cover letter and then shared it on her Facebook page.
‘He really wants to work. If any locals know of any special employers out there please send us a message,’ Lisa wrote before sharing her son’s letter on social media. He soon began receiving plenty of offers from potential employers including McDonald’s and Australian retailer Coles apart from small local businesses.
Many people also left words of encouragement for Addison and praised him for his sincerity.
Fortunately, Addison soon accepted a job offer from a restaurant at the Erina Rugby League Club and is happily working over there.
