Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

This is a two fold post - one as a warning and the other a vent.

I have been really lucky to have been a stay at home Mom for most of my daughter's life (she is now 16) but after losing our company I need a job!

It seems more times than not when I apply through Craigslist for a position (just simply an assistant) they turn out to be a scam!!!  Yesterday almost immediately I got a response and googled the guys name.  Sure enough people were posting they had been scammed.

What happened to the old days where you applied for a job - they called you and set up an interview if they liked you they made you an offer???  Either it is agencies who are looking to fill positions for other companies or they are scams or no one ever responses to your application.

Unfortunately being out of the work place and no degrees isn't helping either.

Thanks for listening

Maureen

Don't apply to jobs on craigslist most of them are scams. Unless you can directly contact someone stay away from it. Reputable companies will give their contact info and a person to contact. I wish you the best!
