      Need an employee

      I need another employee possibly two to help me with my business now but I am not sure where to start looking for someone. There are so many people out of work now that I know if I put an ad in the paper the response will be overwhelming. Any other ideas?

      Try Craigslist, but list anonymously or you will get lots of scammers picking up your details and posting fake job offers in your name. Ask applicants to send a fax to verify their location, and only then introduce yourself. Requesting a fax also skims time wasters from serious applicants. Then ask each qualified applicant to send you their CV. You could also prepare an online questionnaire or MS Word doc questionnaire to evaluate the suitability of each applicant.

      Another option is to search local classified ads for people looking for a job, if you require a local resource that can work alongside you.

      Elance.com is a good option for hiring coders, copywriters, admin staff, etc. You can find many US based resources, plus can review feedback and identify resources that are most local to you.

      Job agencies are very expensive and unless you need a highly skilled resource they are not cost effective. Plus they will set limits on the type of contract you can adopt. You should aim for a freelance agreement, where the onus of declaring taxes and paying social security contributions falls with the freelancer. Check with your accountant for details.

      I think the idea about using Craigs list and a survey is a good idea. I have also been considering an additional employee and dreading the applicant search.
