Yesterday it was revealed the the U.S. economy lost a staggering 533,000 jobs in November. Today's its not a surprise that the homeless and jobless professionals will find innovative ways to seek jobs in this declining economy. Paul Nawrocki, who says he is beyond the point where he cares about humiliation, has found a desperate, but innovative way.
"Almost homeless," reads the sign. "Looking for employment. Very experienced operations and administration manager."
Wearing a suit and tie under the sign, Nawrocki -- who was in the toy industry 36 years before being laid off in February -- stands on Manhattan corners for hours, hoping to pass resumes to interested passers-by.
"When you're out of work and you face having nothing -- I mean, having no income -- pride doesn't mean anything," Nawrocki said. "You need to find work. I have to take care of my family."
Paul Nawrocki is a former toy industry executive. Every week he takes 90 minute train ride to New York city walking the streets wearing a sandwich board that advertises his plight: The former toy-industry executive needs a job.
At least this way made Mr. Nawrocki an instant celebrity. Presently Paul Nawrocki search is one of the top searches in Google. Perhaps people are looking to him to see what other innovative ways there can be to find a job in this economy.
People may feel sorry about Paul Nawrocki. I don't. I admire him.
Mr. Nawrocki has a find a very innovative way of not only struggling and searching for job, but also raising an awareness about an entire army of people who are jobless.
In fact Mr. Nawrocki is already well known. I am sure someone or some company will surely offer him a job or perhaps Jay Leno or David Letterman may invite him for an interview. However, what about those who are in the choose of Paul Nawrocki and have no way of raising attention about their cause.
