GREENWICH - A Stamford man literally pounded the pavement Wednesday in search of a new job by standing on a Greenwich street corner wearing a sandwich board sign advertising his services.

Wilson Lauture, who has a bachelor's degree in accounting and an MBA, says he has tried every other method of job searching unsuccessfully. Though the 50-year-old says he was nervous calling attention to himself this way, he hopes the effort will pay off.

Some residents say Lauture's Depression-era tactic will fall flat. While News 12 Connecticut watched Lauture and his two sons, one employer stopped by and happily took Lauture's resume.
