Sharon Shachar is walking through Milton Keynes this morning advertising herself on a sandwich board. She says that this unusual way of getting a job is a last resort as she has been out of work for over a year.
Sharon from Daniels Welch in Coffee Hall, MK has written on her sandwich board what jobs she is looking for as well as her name and email address. She started off this morning at Milton Keynes railway station where she got quite a lot of attention from people heading into work.
She's spending the rest of the morning walking along Midsummer Boulevard and Silbury Boulevard where a lot of local businesses are based. Her daughter Samantha has joined in helping her hand out copies of her CV.
Sharon was made redundant from her last job where she worked in the medical records department at MK hospital. She claims to have applied for hundreds of jobs and taken courses but is still unemployed.
