Have you ever gotten a job from Cragislist.org?

Asked by Triiiple (1351 points ) June 5th, 2009

Ive been recently sending out my resume like mad on Craigslist.org.

Personally ive gotten 3 jobs from this site including one working at the FL Highway Patrol.

Anyone else have such luck with Craigslist?

Yes, i found my previous job via Craigslist.

Right now, however, I’m not having such luck.

My current job, I found on Craigslist. Also the one I had before that. Oh, and the one before that.

Yeah. My first two part time nanny jobs were found on Craigslist. There’s some wackos on there, but there’s also lots and lots of good intentioned, fantastic people.

Yes, and it was a great job with a startup company that was close to home. However, it was several years ago, before Craigslist became overrun with spam and scam listings (atleast that’s how bad it is in my area).

Current position.
And, I do recruiting in my position and many of our applicants come to us through our Craigslist postings.

Yep. Current job I found on craigslist after spending 3 unproductive months on the big job websites. What I found though is that most big companies will not directly advertise on CL, instead opting for recruiting companies to prescreen applicants. Some recruiting companies do use CL but not all.

I found a job on craigslist, great company but wouldn’t pay me enough to leave my current job so I turned them down.

Yep. I found my lawfirm job on Craigslist. I was a Law Clerk, running errands and whatnot and what have you. Pretty awesome stuff right there.

Oh ya. I’ve gotten jobs from Craigslist (including my current job). I got our dog from Craigslist. I got tons of free stuff from Craigslist (books, plants, etc..). We got a great deal on wood from Craigslit (10.00 for an entire trunk full of wood, and we have a PT Cruiser). I’ve had huge success with them.
