Job Seeker Hands Out Resumes on NYC Street Corner; Lands Five Interviews!

Ever wondered what would happen if you literally pounded the pavement to land a new job? Or went knocking on doors the old-fashioned way and submitted a hard copy resume to a receptionist?

We’re big fans of thinking outside the box with a job search, so keeping that in mind, one man landed five interviews by standing on a street corner!

As pointed out by The Wall Street Journal, Vincent A. Giordano has been searching for two years. Well, the past few weeks he started working the streets in NYC by handing out his resume.

At 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue, he told the newspaper, “I gave out 50 resumes in one day.” That resulted in five interviews “but no cigar.”
