Two Florida graduates hit the road - literally- looking for a job

Two University of South Florida grads are doing all they can to land a job.
They are hitting the pavement -- literally -- hoping for a big break.
   
Laura Harris took a walk with them on their journey.
It's an unconventional approach to looking for a job.
While most people think traffic is a headache recent USF grad Damian Romero sees the morning commute as an opportunity.

"You can't do what everybody else is doing because its hard to get ahead."
While he walks up and down in and out of traffic on Kennedy Boulevard in Tampa with this sign that says it all.

Then he does some talking of his own --
"You can tell a lot about a person by looking at them.  How he dresses, how he talks, how he handles himself."

Romero says he has handed out more than 2 dozen resumes in three days more bites than he's gotten with online applications.

"I let it build up a bit and then I take a walk."
It's a strategy he shares with fellow USF grad Jarod Fluck.

The two trying to beat the odds one red light at a time --
"i actually got a parking lot interview the other day. A guy asked me to step into his car and he gave me a quick interview on the spot!"

The duo say its more or less to get the face to face interview the unemployed jockey for everyday.

And while some are sweating the job search at home..
These two are literally sweating.

What's the one thing you would change if you could about your job search right now?
It being winter.

And as you can tell, these guys really believe in what they're doing.  So much so, they gave me their resumes to bring back to the station.  If you want to help them out, I've posted a link on how you can find them at abcactionnews.com.
