should we have an "Employment Wanted" section in the classifieds

I just noticed another member looking for hotrodding-related employment.

I'm considering adding an "Employment Wanted" section to our Classifieds Ads.

There are currently 730 ads in the Classifieds -- it appears to be fairly successful so far. My thinking is that an "Employment Wanted" section would complement the "Help Wanted" section well. If people were looking for jobs, they could post a free ad. I know we have a lot of recent automotive school grads, I think this could be helpful for them.

One concern about this that was mentioned in the moderator forum, was that it would attract non-hotrodding ads, such as "Truck Driver Wanted" type of ads. I'm assuming that we would have to monitor it to prevent such ads from diluting the usefulness of Employment ads.

Is this a good idea? Please vote in the poll -- thanks .

Jon, would this be for a company looking to hire a employee or would this be for someone who is looking to have a company perform a job on their cars? I for one have placed a employee needed add in the classified section, just after it opened. Didn't get any response from it, but I think it would be a good addition to a great site.

I think you would be opening up a can of worms with an employment wanted category and I don't think we have enough call for something like that to implement it.

I took a seminar on job hunting.....It is a fact that only 7% of jobs are found online. To get a job , you need to get out there and pound the pavement. Just something to think about.

I think it would be a good Idea , But you might want a section for companies to post to and mabe even a small charge to them or a recuiter. so people could reply. Them you could have a section for people to trade there talent for service I don't think you want to get in to a e- bay deal. If done right It sure would be a good way for people to get work done and make a little cash on the side for there project.

I Think it might be a good idea,, I would use it because right now I am looking for a fabricator,,and this would be a good place to find someone,, one drawback I see in hiring a person on line is kinda like buying something on E/Bay,, you don't know what you are getting,, and the problem of relocating,, not all apllicants and employers are going to be located in the same place, but that is something that could be worked out between them,, worth a try I guess,, I agree with Poncho,, you need to go after the job you want,,

I think it has merit, but if you do make it a part of the classifieds, I believe it should also have a place to insert a resume', that way the prospective employer has a general idea of the job candidate's credentials.

Thanks Doc for your input. I did mean a limited resume' I just inadvertently left out the "limited". Definitely no SS# or Personal ph#. Just education related to the job and without mentioning the name of co., your work experience.

Doc here ,

Yes, for a few reasons.

It will provide a place for someone looking for work..to look as well as one who is looking for an employee..Instead of a chance meeting in a tech Column.

Two, If we allow it in the Tech columns it will turn into an EBAY or Craig's list instead of tech help for those seeking it ...

Resumes should be handled by the seeker..not the site..Besides that .. do you want the whole community to know every place you ever worked? and the address and phone? Not me..PLUS your name, address, phone number? think about it..

A Brief Description of your experience, and Schooling should suffice to generate any interest if a potential Employer is looking..Then He can Email for a resume or set an interview up.

Let's keep the ads out of the TECH forums..and give them their own home!

Doc

Not a bad idea

So both Employers and people looking for work could come together.
