Sign of the times

Euclid residents who regularly travel along East 222nd Street are familiar with the sight of the fellow wearing the “We Buy Gold” sandwich board. And, no doubt, passing motorists have made such comments as “Who is that guy?” or “Hey, he’s still out there!” 

Well, here’s the answer to the first question. The man is Domenic Brnjic, who has been standing out in front of Euclid Gold & Silver, 630 East 222nd, for the past eight months, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day, seven days a week. When asked why he does such tedious work, he offered a simple, straightforward answer: “It’s a job.”

Brnjic, who emigrated from Croatia to the United States 43 years ago, previously worked for 14 years at the Al Paul Car Wash on Shore Center Drive. When the car wash went out of business, he had to find employment elsewhere—not an easy task in the current economic environment. His business card, adorned with a picture of gold bars and coins, identifies him as being in sales, but his primary role is to attract the attention of people who want to turn their gold jewelry into cash.

Euclid Gold & Silver, owned by Anthony DeBaltzo, is one of many Cleveland area jewelry concerns that have been using TV advertising to drum up business. But it has also found that there are other effective was to attract the public’s attention. Brnjic is proof of that. (By the way, DeBaltzo notes that his business has been doing quite well in recent months.)

Finding a job on the Internet

"I bet it would be cool to work there.”

Any company, organization or institution that you can think of probably has a web site that posts current job openings. On many sites, you can even create a profile in the web site’s or company’s database and request an email when a job becomes available that may match your profile. If you've been meaning to check out a company’s web site, today would be a good day to go ahead and do it. If you are one of those who is still trying to avoid the Internet as much as possible, waiting until you’re unemployed is not the best time to try new things.

Don’t have a particular company in mind?

Indeed.com is a job-site I discovered recently that pulls jobs from thousands of company career sites and job boards; it's a great place to start. The State of Ohio has a job search called Ohio MeansJobs: ohiomeansjobs.com/omj.  Other job search engines include: ihirejobnetwork.com, monster.com, careerboard.com, and  careerbuilder.com.
