Craig’s List

Have you been to www.craigslist.com? A very innocuous site with lots of value and punch for the regional US or international job seeker. According to USA Today newspaper: “Craigslist is a giant Internet bulletin board where people buy and sell their stuff, trade humor and political wisdom, look for dates, seek home repair advice, share their poetry and often just rant. Some call the site a public forum. Others call it a classified market. Many call it an obsession…. It’s kind of a big library of everyone else’s knowledge… It is getting back to that sense of community that we’ve lost.”

Before I scare you away from Craig’s List, let me add what makes it such a viable tool and recommendation for the job seeker:

- Region/country special sites for 60 major US cities, Canada, Europe, UK, Americas, Australia and others.
- Job postings (frequently unique to Craig’s List) but representing both big and little players.
- Consulting gig postings and opportunities as varied as VH1’s recruitment for their reality shows.
- Resume posting / searchability.
- Discussion forum on jobs / employment.
- Volunteer opportunities.

The best part about Craig’s List, which has been growing in popularity on the Internet since 1995, is that everything is free except posting jobs. Even then, for a company to post a job opportunity the fee is only $75 – highly reasonable in today’s booming Internet job posting frenzy.

Take a moment to check out www.craigslist.com and see if it offers another regional tool to support your clients in their transitions.

Your post is great and let me say

A favorite pastime of mine is Sports Betting to make a few extra bucks.
My only problems is that I was never good at picking teams or games.
Recently I found a site that is like Sports Betting but I dont lose my money if my pick is bad.

Its a sports stock market, kinda like NASDAQ. which makes a big difference because if I buy shares in a team. I keep the stock whether they win or lose, but as a bonus I get paid divdends if they win.
So I can make money with dividends and also from selling high and buying low.

I buy shares in NFL, NASCAR, NCAAB, MLB, Golf, Tennis ect....
They just released Some Great IPOS's this week!

Heres a link http://allsportsmarket.com

Keep up the good work on your blog!
