Yes, I agree with the lack of information on the postings. I just finished a interview at a church and they said they always use Craiglist.

Everything happens for a reason!

I've been using Craigslist for 7 months now. I actually have gotten a few interviews plus a temporary part time job (now over) from that site. The only thing I don't like about it is that most of the jobs listed don't give you a company name or any way to find out who or where they are. But, if you are careful - it's a great source of jobs.

A setback is only a setup for a comeback!

I always forget about Craig's List...and am so pleased with what I find when I browse through...!

Thx for the reminder!

Thanks for the info!

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

I know I've mentioned it before but want to bring it up again.

Check out the job listings on Craigslist if you are still looking for employment. For those not familiar with Craigslist, it's for posting everything, not just items that people want to get rid of.

Recently (past 3 weeks), I've been focusing on the postings. I pick one day a week and look back at the job postings in my area. Here's the link www.craigslist.org/about/sites

Find your state and nearest city location. Waaaalaaa. There is a WHOLE section of jobs.

Start looking at your profession and go back through the past week or more. Apply to what you think sounds interesting.

However, I will put this in...Be aware of scams. You know them, you've heard about them and they are on there. BUT that said, check it out. You might just find that hidden job. I replied to about 10 postings last week and have gotten good, job leads back from approx 5 postings. That doesn't happen all the time but at least, it's worth a shot!

Good luck!

Everything happens for a reason!
