I’m also going to add my own two cents to this as far as job searching:
When looking for a job on Craigslist or any job board, use caution. Some positions are actually "home-based businesses" and if you are looking for an hourly or a salary job, they could use Craigslist as a way of "dangling the carrot". Then, depending on circumstances, you will be spending money and time going to the "interview" only to find out that you wasted time.
Make sure to only reply to opportunities that spells out most of the job details in the ad, especially the pay-per-hour or a base salary per year. Any ad that creates Craigslist like a newspaper classified should be proceed with caution.
After all, Craigslist charges people per post, not per word.
