Craigslist: Another Place to Look for Jobs Online

Craigslist has been gaining popularity throughout the last decade or so as a place to post a free online classified ad. If you want to unload your tacky "leg lamp" like the one in A Christmas Story, you'll likely find someone through Craigslist who will gladly come and haul it away for you. But only recently have I become aware of this site's usefulness as a place to post and find jobs.

Faced with the prospect of paying almost a thousand bucks for a local newspaper ad that will yield hundreds of resumes but few of them really qualified, Sue suggested that we try posting an ad on Craigslist. I have been thrilled with the quality of the responses so far.

Many other employers across the nation are taking advantage of this low-key way to connect with candidates. For example, in New York, High Times is looking for a proofreader; in San Francisco, North Atlantic Books is looking for an editorial director; and in Chicago, PIL is looking for a cookery editor.

So while you're out there trolling for jobs or candidates, don't forget to stop by Craigslist.
