ATLANTA (AP) -- An unemployed Atlanta woman is trying something different to get a job -- billboards.
Lorraine Ankarstran is an unemployed paralegal who says she's been looking for several months but can't find a job.
She recently turned to placing ads on billboards around the city. For the next month, each one will feature her picture as well as her e-mail address. The ads run 10 seconds out of every minute 24 hours a day. The ads have been out for about a week.
Ankarstran will not say how much she paid for the billboards, but according to Lamar Advertising, it costs $3,000 on average for an ad on a single billboard.
