BRIDGEPORT, CONN. (AP) - An unemployed Connecticut woman has taken her job search to the side of a highway.

Pasha Stocking, of East Hampton, has rented a billboard along Interstate 95 in Bridgeport. The sign includes her photo and the message, “Hire Me!” It directs people to her Web site, https://www.hirepasha.com.

Stocking, a 37-year-old single mother, was laid off in June. She says has tried everything to land a new job in marketing and design. She also is interested in executive assistant positions.

Stocking says she got the idea from a Milwaukee man who did the same thing.

She says she’s paying for the ad with money she had been saving to buy a home. She won’t say how much she spent, but the billboard company says on its Web site that a similar sign costs about $7,000 a month.
