I got a job off Craigslist one time, but he was THE boss from hell. Legitimate company, but there was a reason the man was advertising on Craigslist.

Some tips I have learned from applying on craiglist
If it sounds to good to be true it is, example:
Call center making $20 an hour
7am-12pm making $500 a week

Too generic posts with not enough info or that sounds to scprited.

When the email you back right away at 11pm at nite lol

Actually, if a person has good sales potential, they should be making this in the telesales world. The economy is a little crappy now, but $20-$25 an hour in a sales position sounds about right. It is around what I average ($27/hr for last year) and I work with people who do make more than that.

It isn't the right job for everyone, but if they are good at it, it is a great option until they find a job they may like better.

Craigslist is good for finding these types of jobs....but so is the local newspaper.

I went thru Craigslist last night, much more appealing posts compared to monster and careerbuilder. I applied for one thing but there were a few others which interested me but decided not to apply.

I've never had much luck with careerbuilder, only one application has ever amounted to anything [I don't count the ones from recruiters as those have been a complete waste of time so far]. I still check it daily, though.

Careerbuilder is a waste of time. There are some scams on craigslist, but not nearly as many as there are on careerbuilder.

Cl adds are a pain in the arse to send resume. It is like a big secret to give out any more info than what they have already. The resumes do not always go thru and come back, so then there is no number to call or heaven forbid a real person to talk to. I know, everyone is so busy they have zero time to help anyone.

work work work, keep it up, God is gonna reward us when we get to heaven for working working working. ugh !

I've been applying for stuff via CL for a long time now, and have never had any problem with anything being sent back. I'd say it's actually the easiest job board as far as being able to just do everything through your own e-mail.
