PHOENIX, Arizona – Some believe you make your own destiny.
Patrick Hoagland used that approach when he was laid off.
He stood on the side of the road in 110 degree heat to hand out his resume.
I was driving down Camelback Rd in Phx near my office and saw this guy on the side of the road with a smile in 110-degree heat, with a sign asking people to take his resume. I love that he was not asking for a handout, just for people to consider him for a job. #pleaseshare #job pic.twitter.com/5QAUpCkGWk
