A Whitesboro man who's been looking for a job for nearly a year is taking a creative approach to finding employment.

Jack Pflanz is marching up and down Genesee Street in Downtown Utica today, wearing a sandwich board with resumes in hand, relaying a message to potential employers that he's available for hire.

At the same time, the Stanley Theater marquee is displaying a similar message to local companies and agencies.

Pflanz has more than 20 years of combined experience in communications, media relations and fund raising.
