New Place to look for Jobs in Frederick

Craigslist has help wanted ads for Frederick Maryland.

I always thought of Craigslist as a classified ads site, a sort of online yard sale site. Well you can look for a job in Frederick there as well.

Newspapers traditionally were THE place to place a help wanted ad and virtually the only place a job seeker would look for employment in Frederick Maryland. The Internet has added many alternative places to go for hunting a job and placing a help wanted ad too.

Craigslist charges $25 for a help wanted ad, I found this out because I need a hired hand for my business. Frederick Web Promotions has a "help wanted" shingle hung on it's substantial piece of Internet Real Estate.

Did you know Craigslist has a Western Maryland section

(update on Craigslist and help wanted ads... Craigslist only charges that $25 for the more popular, high traffic cities it features ads in, you may run a Help Wanted Ad in most cities on Craigslist and it won't cost you a dime. I found out because when researching for this help wanted ad I wanted to run it in Washington DC, fast forward 6 months later and a Commercial Cleaning Service I am the webmaster for needed to hire 10 people in upstate New York. I ran a Craigslist Help Wanted Ad in Buffalo NY and it was free.

Craigslist even has a section where they compare Craigslist to and
