Unemployed Banker Stands on NYC street with `For Hire' Sign

Call it a sign of the times. An unemployed banker has taken to the streets of Manhattan - wearing a pinstriped suit and an "MIT Graduate for Hire" sign draped over his shoulders. Joshua Persky, an unemployed financial engineer, says he'll be passing out resumes during the lunch hour all week.

On Monday, he promoted himself in front of the Charles Schwab building at 50th Street and Park Avenue.

Persky lost his job six months ago as an investment banking consultant.

His wife and five kids are moving to her native Nebraska while he continues to look for work in New York.
