Craigslist Overview:

Craigslist is a good source of job listings in a specific location. Jobs are listed by location and category. You can also post your resume to your local Craigslist site. However, Craiglist is also a source of employment related scams, so it's important to check out the listings before you apply.

Craigslist Job Search Options:

The easiest way to find jobs on Craigslist is to go to the city or state site where you are interested in looking for jobs. You'll see a directory of sites on the right side of the original Craigslist page or you can go directly to the list of Craigslist - Cities. Not all cities have a dedicated site, so if you don't see your city, use the state site.

Once you've reached the location you want, either click on the type of job or click on "Jobs" to run a keyword search.

Instructions on how to apply are included in the individual job posting.
