"The job market is really bad, especially in my career field, so I decided to get out here and find something local," said Richter.
One of the signs Richter made up lists his background: a degree in marketing, a veteran of the Gulf War, Sunday school teacher, father of seven.
Richter has a bit of paralysis.
"I got a virus, and it's call Bell's palsy, it's paralyzed my face temporarily," said Richter. "Hopefully it will be gone in about a week or so."
Several motorists copy his number or his Web site. Richter says he gets three to eight prospects a day, but so far no job.
"You know, if somebody hires me they are going to get a very dedicated, very hard-working employee," said Richter.
If perseverance has its just rewards, Mat Richter's will pay off.
