Hiring In Santa Cruz

Hi Everyone,

Been having a hell of a time hiring down here. In the past, I’ve posted adds on craiglist, but these days, I run and add for a week and don’t even get responses. Last on I ran I got 3 responses, only one replied to and interview request, and he didn’t show up. Anyone have any luck elsewhere? Is there a place to post job adds here? Any advice would b appreciate.



I hear the labor market is really tight in North America. Seen news stories about lots of employers with unfilled positions unable to expand due to not enough workers.

I’m in San Jose and it’s been horrible trying to get new people. And the few that we do get are unqualified or don’t last long. Best bet has been referrals. I offer $250 to employees who refer someone who stays a month.
