Comments

  1. Actually it ends by saying Compensation: No pay. hmmmm

  2. At least it eliminates those sleepless nights worrying if the client who said they definitely will pay you, actually will. How considerate!

  3. Oooh – I will receive a real contract that will GURANTEE the owner’s privacy, as well as INSURANCE that I will be a real employee? And payment is possible? Oh, frabjous joy and rapture! It’s too good to be true.

    I can’t imagine that this awesome opportunity is still available. No doubt the email account has been glutted with eager responses all begging, “Pick me! Pick me!”

  4. I used Craigslist extensively to recruit writers for our company’s seasonal and specialty projects in the past.

    Unfortunately, since I was downsized in June (after 20+ years), I have had no luck with Craigslist. I cannot seem to find credible “non-scam” listings since I have been looking for work.

    I believe it must have to do with the current economic times. A lot of wolves at the door.

    That is sad.

  5. Unfortunately, spell checking is neither real here or guaranteed.

    My ears hurt from the shouting I just read.

  6. Sorry, “neither real here NOR guaranteed”.

    Apparently, spell checking isn’t even guaranteed by this poster! LOL!
