Go the resume section and search for your field, for example mine "Customer Service". Then see were others have worked in the same field and google the company and see if they have any openings. lol I have applied for 6 jobs this way today. All of them ones I have no seen posted on the major job websites!

I remember going to the resume section on CL and posted a piece of my resume with an catchy title and ended up getting a response from a person who was a staffing specialist at a employment agency. So that's another way, the partial resume posting strategy

Use CraigsPalFree to locate jobs across Craigslist.
It's freeware available from download.com.

If it's a job..and it's on Craigslist,then this software will find it.

Where is the resume section? I've seen job listings but no resume section...

I've never used Craig's list but decided to just see what's on there. Although my industry utilizes other channels, I have found two legit employers with postings on Craig's List (Just completed the online application for one of them on their website). The other job was obsolete but found something else on the employer's website, which I'm working on my cover letter/resume as we type.

You can find it at /res/ for your local CL community.

so if you're in detroit, it would be http://detroit .craigslist . com /res/

I put extra spaces in there on purpose.

so if you're in detroit, it would be Stats about all US cities - real estate, relocation info, house prices, home value estimator, recent sales, cost of living, crime, race, income, photos, education, maps, weather, houses, schools, neighborhoods, and more .craigslist . com /res/

I put extra spaces in there on purpose.

The resume section is at the bottom of the page

Hey BoxerLady, that is the true definition of THINKNG OUTSIDE THE BOX. I never thought of doing that when I used CL for job search and just want to tell you to maintain that CREATIVITY and I'm sure you will find something soon. I'm rooting for you!!!!
