Man Hands out Resumes in Blistering Heat After Being Laid Off

In Phoenix, Arizona, 30-year-old Patrick Hoagland got creative when it came to finding a new job.

The former forklift operator had been laid off, and after weeks of applying for new positions, he took to the streets with 200 copies of his resume in hand.

He drew up a sign that said: “Plese Take a Resume Laid-Off Looking For A Job.” He spent three days out in the high Arizona temperatures handing out his resumes with a smile on his face.

While he stood out there he caught Melissa DiGianfilippo’s eye. An employee at a PR and Marketing firm, DiGianfilippo posted Hoagland’s resume to Twitter hoping to help him land a job.
