Pa. man gets job offers by holding sign by road

A central Pennsylvania man is weighing his options after his unorthodox method of finding work netted 17 job offers. When 27-year-old Joe Sabol lost his job at a supermarket chain's corporate office in December, he started a conventional job search. But after sending out 155 resumes didn't get him work, he walked along a busy street in Manheim Township, Lancaster County, with a sign saying, "College Grad Looking For Employment."

Although he's gotten some job offers, he says he plans to be on the street again Thursday.

Sabol says he got a bachelor's degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2006. He lives in Manheim Township, near Lancaster, about 70 miles west of Philadelphia.
