We’re not saying this would work for everyone, but if you’re looking for a job, here’s someone who didn’t expect something to fall in their lap . . . got creative . . . and proved they knew how to hustle.
28-year-old Carrie Kemeling quit her job in Buffalo, New York earlier this month after she got passed over for a promotion.
She was a sales rep at a jewelry store for three years, and she’d been in the industry for seven. And when she realized they were never going to make her a manager, she decided she could do better.
So instead of eating junk food and watching “Maury” for a week straight, she immediately started looking for a new job . . . by standing on a CORNER and handing out resumes to anyone who would take one.
For the next three days, she got dressed up like she was going on an interview . . . stood next to a sign that said, “Not homeless, but hungry for success” . . . and handed out resumes.
And by the end of her third day, she had THIRTEEN different job offers.
None of them paid what she wanted though. So she kept at it, and ended up getting a full-time job with an I.T. company called Stampede Global. She started work this past Tuesday.

Could you ever have too much money?
What’s the perfect amount?
The “New York Post” just posted a conversation with 46-year-old Manhattan writer and mother-of-one, Suzanne Corso, who used to be a member of the one percent, until her husband Anthony, a financier, lost their $100 million dollar fortune during the 2008 fiscal crisis.
Corso explains that in November 2005, she, her husband and their six-year-old daughter were living in an 11-room suite at the Ritz-Carlton on Wall Street. Corso says she was appalled by the excess since she grew up on food stamps in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn and she felt like she and her husband might be raising a spoiled kid.
Then three years later, Anthony blew his entire $100 million dollar fortune during the financial crisis. Corso says “looking back, it was the best thing that ever happened. Hanging out with the uber-wealthy was dull and empty.
If someone handed me $100 million today, I’d give it back in a heartbeat.” She experienced private planes, yachts, exotic safaris, and hanging out with celebrities, not to mention having three vacation homes in the Hamptons and on North Fork, and sending her daughter to private schools.
After everything blew up, they had to rent a two-bedroom apartment in Battery Park City and Anthony got depressed.
Corso decided to become a writer, and her book, “Brooklyn Story,” became a best-seller in 2010.
Her latest book, “Hello Hollywood,” was published last month.
