Craigslist Job Search

I have been reading a lot of articles lately about many jobs going unfilled because candidates are not 100% qualified for the position. For example, manufacturing is making a come-back In the United States – at least on paper. According to the news reports, manufacturers indicate that they are frustrated because they cannot find qualified employees. Really? With the millions of people unemployed in this country, there is not ONE qualified person to fill the requirements of the job?

Reason: Since the screening is done based on the matching of your online job profile with the job description, missing out some important content or having different content in your attached profile may affect you’re your chances of getting through the sort listing for further processing which is generally done by the person who creates the job.

From the, you can usually infer what is most important to the sales manager. Those usually can be found in the section of the job description that highlights the candidate requirements for the job. Include bulleted descriptions and statistics that map back to those elements.

Once you have the software downloaded you can start your search. Start with the keywords you previously selected in the search box in the upper left side of the Craigslist page. Your search can be customized to include various cities and even nationwide job posting sites postings. Also, part-time jobs are listed in a separate category.

Now, it is on to job-specific information. Anyone looking for a job needs to know a few basic pieces of information. They want to know the job title, pay, and job description. When you list the job title, make sure the title gives the job seeker an idea of what the job is.

While legitimate employers often ask for this information from prospective employees, scammers take advantage of this by posting legitimate sounding offers on career web sites to steal your identity. Do not provide your social security number until you have thoroughly researched the employer and are confident that the company and opportunity are legitimate.

To be on the safer side of issues just restrict your search with companies or sites you feel comfortable with. Some of these sites have put in place mechanism to take care of scammers, so you can somehow relax and work with their sites. But have in mind that these sites can get you connected to the right people and industries where, your job might be waiting.
