BRIDGEPORT - An East Hampton mother of three is paying $2,000 to put up a billboard to help her get a job.

Pasha Stocking, 37, was laid off from her job as a sales and marketing director in July. She paid to have a billboard for 30 days to direct motorists in Bridgeport to her online resume.

"I'm just [an] out-of-the-box type of thinker," Stocking says. "I'm open for a change and I like to do things that aren't ordinary and I like to take risks."

Stocking says her resume has already gotten about 200 hits.
