Trying anything to land a job

It's a sign of the times -- "MIT Graduate for Hire."

Unemployed banker Joshua Persky is trying something new to land a job.

He's wearing a pinstriped suit and a signboard on the streets of Manhattan.

He's also handing out resumes.

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 pound the pavement looking for work in New York.
