Sandwich Board Works for Job Hunter

Five months after being laid off from his job as a mechanical maintenance engineer,  39-year-old Jason Fruen had tried almost everything to find another job.  Finally he made a sandwich board sign advertising himself and his phone number, and spent two days standing near a major intersection in Manchester, England.

 Surprisingly enough, the ploy worked, and Fruen landed an interview and the company offered him a position.  After the interview, he got some other offers as well, and he'll decide this week which one he'll take.

"I think we're going to see a lot more people adopting this way of looking for work. I've still got a mortgage to pay, and that's why I was out there doing it."
