Laid-Off City Worker Using Billboard To Find New Job

A laid-off city worker has taken an unconventional approach to finding a job — posting an ad on a billboard.

Mary Witt, 48, has been looking for full-time work since December, when she was laid off from her City Hall secretarial job. She sought help from employment agencies and scoured Internet sites and newspapers looking for full-time work, all to no avail.

“It’s hard out there. That’s what I want people to know,” she said. “I’ve worked almost nonstop since I was 17 years old. I’m a worker. I don’t want to sit at home.”
