JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 19 (UPI) -- A Florida woman who has had trouble finding a job said she invested $250 toward her cause by posting her resume on a billboard for 24 hours.

Kim Wilburn of Jacksonville, a former civil engineer who lost her job three years ago, said she had her resume posted for 24 hours on a Clear Channel billboard facing the southbound lanes of Interstate 95, WJXT-TV, Jacksonville, reported Wednesday.

"Are You Looking for A Professional Employee? Look No Further!" the billboard reads.

"It started out as a joke, you know," Wilburn said. "You're riding down the interstate and you see billboards, and I told my husband, 'I think we need to just rent a billboard sign. And now two, three years later, it's become a reality, and we just decided to go for it."

"You have to be different nowadays to get the job," she said. "You have to stand out and be different. And they contacted the radio stations, and here we are."
