People looking for graduate jobs have had advice from an unlikely source – Mr T.

The 56-year-old actor, made famous by his role in 80s TV series The A-Team, has urged UK jobseekers not to give up in the face of setbacks.

While visiting London, he said that life is about "fair play".

"If you get knocked down, setbacks in life, like applying for a job if they don't hire you, keep trying, keep getting up, keep doing it," he said.

"Don't give up, that's what it's about."

Mr T is in the UK for his Snickers Get Some Nuts Tour which will take place until March 1st.

The Association of Graduate Recruiters recently offered its own tips for graduate jobseekers, saying that they should thoroughly research the vacancies they apply for.

Writing in the Times, the group's chief executive officer Carl Gilleard stated that ten good applications were more likely to succeed than 100 bad ones.
