    NEW YORK (CNN) -- Paul Nawrocki says he's beyond the point where he cares about humiliation.

    That's why he weekly takes a 90-minute train ride to New York, where he walks the streets wearing a sandwich board that advertises his plight: The former toy-industry executive needs a job.


    "Almost homeless," reads the sign. "Looking for employment. Very experienced operations and administration manager."


    Wearing a suit and tie under the sign, Nawrocki -- who was in the toy industry 36 years before being laid off in February -- stands on Manhattan corners for hours, hoping to pass resumes to interested passers-by.

    Although this gentleman's background is in Operations & Admin. Mgmt., he's done quite well in the PR department. Bless him!

    From the streets to National news and if he's lucky will have a 1-minute cover story on the CNN network. Good for him. The phone is surely ringing by now.
