A recent MBA graduate who can't find work has posted his résumé in the yellow taxi he's been driving around New York City to help pay his bills.

James Williamson earned his master's degree in business administration at Philadelphia's La Salle University. Then he spent four months on interviews while looking for work troubleshooting electronics, doing technical sales or writing advertising copy.

When that didn't pan out he got his taxi license a month ago.

The Durham, N.C., native says he posted his résumé in the back of his taxi as a last resort and he's hoping one of his customers might become his employer.

He says he's received a couple of business cards and supportive comments but no job offers.

"I actually had a lady come in the cab who was giving me a few tips on my résumé," he told the New York Post.
