Searching Craigslist for Home Jobs

Boulder CraigslistCraigslist may rank at the top of the litter when it comes to finding jobs. And the more work home jobs presented, the more scrutiny. Do you know how to pick em'.

If you've ever searched for a good job on craigslist, you probably get

frustrated pretty quickly. There are so many scams there, it gets

exhausting trying to report them all. Though there are many red flags

to look for when you search that can alert you that something's fishy.

Is

the email address from a free host such as yahoo or hotmail? While this

alone does not indicate a scam, still be on high alert and look for

other clues. If the company is not mentioned, don't be afraid to

contact the poster regarding their organization or the background of

their business or even more details concerning the position. I would

never recommend someone blindly sending out their cover and resume with

minimal flimsy information. You don't have to feel like the pawn in

their personal playground. Speak up. Be upfront about your intentions

to apply as well as questions regarding the company's business

affiliation.

Are there mistakes in the ad? This is top of the

line high alert status. Someone who deals in human resources or owns a

business for that matter will make sure to check over their work. Would

you be comfortable flying if the pilot was not familiar with everything

inside plane? You should feel the same way when you see ads that are

not professional, includes distracting photos or crazy formatting.

Do

you see the job ad posted lots of places? Craigslist has a rule and

they are very picky about the same ad being posted in different cities

at the same time. If you see this ask yourself why would a legit

company purposely not follow the rules. What would they want to gain by

receiving hundreds of resumes, especially if there is only one person

in charge of the hiring.

If you see jobs that does not make

sense, be careful. Job ads that claim of $18-22 an hour working from

home with the only duties of the job is for you to answer emails

without needing education or experience is a sure sign of a scam.

There

are many ads that pose as jobs though are really businesses in

disguise. They may lure you in by highlighting the business's

background and describe the responsibilities of the job in a format

that manipulates you into believing it's a real job. But remember. any

job you have to pay money for, isn't a job at all.

Also, don't

be afraid to get your feet wet and go fishing. There are a handful of

websites that will search the entire Craigslist website for any search

terms found. Locate a couple of these great free ones and take a couple

hours out of your week to do some deep diving. You may find some pretty

nifty treasures.
