Man Puts Up ‘Please Hire My Wife’ Billboard
Holly Stuard’s husband just put her resume in front of thousands of fresh faces. The Ohio man rented billboard space reading “Please Hire My Wife” to help the former Toledo University employee get back to work.
“Over the last five or six months, she’s had a few opportunities come along that we thought looked really positive and unfortunately they just didn’t work out,” Brandon Stuard told local Fox affiliate Toledo News Now. “I felt a sense of, she was getting a little frustrated, but not losing hope. But I wanted to do something maybe help lift her spirits if nothing else.”
Stuard says the billboard space has cost him $700 but that he and his wife will consider it a bargain if he helps her restart her career.
The sign highlights some of Stuard’s qualifications, including an MBA and experience in both business and academic sectors. She said she would like to work in development with a company, focusing on maximizing productivity and growth in human capital. The billboard also offers a contact email for potential employers to contact Stuard directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
