Sandwich board man gets job

sandwich board man gets job special research report Photo by
Unfortunately, the unemployed toy operations manager has yet to find a job, despite all the publicity he has received for parading around Midtown Manhattan wearing a sandwich board that says “Almost Homeless.” I think people react so viscerally to Nawrocki’s plight because it is a situation that could happen to anybody. Many readers have written in offering advice and pointing out the obvious — that employers don’t hire you because you need a job and that desperate measures like wearing a sandwich board could actually be counterproductive. Nawrocki, who has a background in theater as well as the toy ...

He declared bankruptcy last year, lived on food stamps, fell behind on his mortgage. Well, good news — after 99 weeks on unemployment, Nawrocki finally found a job.

LTR Game & The Great Recession
OK fellas, the Summer is officially here, we’re about a week out from the Nation’s birthday, and…you’re brokedown and busted financially.

Sign of the times: Famed NYC sandwich-board job hunter lands work ...
NEW YORK — When laid-off toy company executive Paul Nawrocki hit the streets of Manhattan wearing a sandwich board and handing out his resume, he became the face of the recession. At the end of 2008, with the giants of Wall Street collapsing and bank accounts dwindling, this lone, mustachioed job hunter with the sign proclaiming he was “almost homeless” seemed like a mirror of a slumping nation’s fears and troubles. Nawrocki appeared on CNN and was shadowed by South American photojournalists. In a handful of weeks, he gave more than 100 interviews in TV studios and on the street. He began to think of his ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

A movie opening this weekend I wanted to like so much. After seeing the trailers months ago, I was eagerly anticipating its arrival. And you won’t find four more talented people in a movie all year (Jonah Hill, Marisa Tomei, John C. Reilly, and Catherine Keener). And the studio even set me up with an interview with Tomei. Nothing like sitting in a cabana near a swimming pool, talking to a woman I loved in so many films, and wanting to ask her “Why wasn’t this movie better?” The movie opens with the clichéd scene of the pathetic, lonely man. He’s caught taking care of himself (for some reason, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Career transitions | MIT Alumni Association's Infinite Connection
Let's say you're a hard-working banker with a degree from MIT, and then one day the swelling financial crisis picks you as its next victim. What do you do? If you're Joshua Persky '81, you fit a sandwich board over your now out-of-work shoulders and walk the streets in search of a job.
