Do You Think This Will Get Us Some Good Staff?

Here is a help wanted ad I just posted on Craig’s list. More on Craig later.

Despite the terrible recession and panic across the nation…the GoNOMAD Cafe is a beacon of stability…full of customers and busy as hell. We need someone to join our staff immediately and bake, make sandwiches, clean up and still be as cheerful as our bottom line. We need part time help, food experience is great but mostly we want reliable fun people who live nearby and want to be a part of the coolest cafe in town.

I was talking with a friend the other night and I mentioned Craig’s list. He said he had never heard of it. I told him it was the two words that newspaper publishers hate more than anything else. I am always amazed when I think of what Craig Newmark did by making up this easy site. I often quote him when he was asked about why they don’t have ads on the site. “Because our users have never asked for them,”was his most elegant reply.
