DFW Area Grand Prairie based

Been actively looking. We all know there is not a mint to be made but I am as fair as I can be.

I just did a review on my ad with the work force commission as well as others. What I am offering is in line with others but few bites.

Few people I reach out to on the commission site really do not seem interested. Something has to give. I assume too many people think they can do better on their own or are working side jobs while on UE.

Kind of scary with commercial clients trying to exert downward pressure and wages having upward pressure. Kind of hard to grow this thing if I spend time in the field and not selling new accounts.

Last year I posted on the Work Force Commision, This year so far after two weeks the same. Few Applicants and little effort to contact me.

Placed an ad on Craigs List and the activity has been great. No one hired yet but plenty of applicants. Very much worth the $25.00.

If people on the workforce commision are on UE many be that helps confirm the stereo type?

Needless to say I am not sure Craigs list is going to be the solution either.
