FREE HUGS AND RESUMES ON THE TRAIN

Just read this piece in the New York Observer called "White Collar Beggar." It's about Jayson Littman, a guy who runs a free hugs booth every Sunday in Washington Square Park, where he gives out hugs to strangers, and during the week, travels the subway, going from car to car handing out copies of his resume, hoping someone can hook him up with a job.

Madd props to Jayson, a networker who's taking his job search to the streets. Of course, if you read the article, it also talks about how his boss has sort of found out that he's looking for a new job...but still, Jayson, good job with the looking for a good job. You've found a captive audience and a mass market all in one! Best of luck, dude.

Jayson Littman here, the hugger/train-networker. I saw your blog and had to respond to you, the Kvetch Goddess. From one Jewish blogger to another (though I just started mine!). Go kosher. Go you!
