CHERRYVILLE, N.C. -- When it comes to finding a job these days, it's all about skills and how to stand out. Frustrated with not finding a job, a Cherryville woman is going to great lengths to try to find work.
Kimberly White lost her job during layoffs a year-and-a-half ago, and then she lost her unemployment benefits.
Desperate to stand out from the other applicants, but without a working car, White decided to get on her daughter's bike and ride to a place that was hiring—26 miles total.
“To say trying to find a job has been difficult is an understatement,” White said. “I really didn't know the distance, (it) didn't kill me.”
The recently divorced mother of two is trying to make the most of out of what has been a trying situation. She's even turned a hobby of making dolls into making money.
"If I didn't have a bike, I would've walked...not too much to ask for the welfare of my family," White added.
At this point White is still waiting to hear back from the company she biked to, and she's hoping her story will give others in similar situations hope.
