People will do almost anything to get a job. Networking, Monster.com, begging, and then there are all of the outlandish things. Well, here is one example of something outlandish. As weird as it sounds, I’m betting that this person finds a job. You have to admire somebody who will go to these lengths to get a job.
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – An unemployed Connecticut woman has taken her job search to the side of a highway.
Pasha Stocking, of East Hampton, has rented a billboard along Interstate 95 in Bridgeport. The sign includes her photo and the message, “Hire Me!” It directs people to her Web site.
Stocking, a 37-year-old single mother, was laid off in June. She says has tried everything to land a new job in marketing and design. She also is interested in executive assistant positions.
Stocking says she got the idea from a Milwaukee man who did the same thing.
She says she’s paying for the ad with money she had been saving to buy a home. She won’t say how much she spent, but the billboard company says on its Web site that a similar sign costs about $7,000 a month.
