Ferg's owner hires man who posted resume on eBay

On the down side, out-of-work Tampa resident Matt Johnson's gambit to post his "sealed resume" on eBay over the holidays was a dud. The top bid was $25, just over the opening bid of $20. On the up side, the attention netted him a job. Entrepreneur Mark Ferguson, who owns Ferg's sports bar and grill in St. Petersburg, liked Johnson's creativity and offered him a full-time marketing job. Plus, he picked up some consulting work on the side. "The overall goal was to find employment, which I have found," Johnson said. "With Mark's business success and his strong presence in the community, I feel I am working with the right guy."
