Weird News - Sacramento man takes job hunt to streets

The Associated Press

An unemployed Sacramento man has taken his job search to the streets.

Twenty-nine-year-old Michael Healey wore a signboard listing his employment qualifications as he stood on a downtown sidewalk Friday near the Sacramento Convention Center.

Healey called the tactic a "hail Mary" pass after six months of searching help-wanted ads produced only a handful of job interviews.

He said he had 10 years of business management experience.

The California Employment Development Department announced Friday that Healey has plenty of company. The state's unemployment rate rose to 8.4 percent in November, up from 8.2 percent in October.
