Full Answer

Craigslist.org offers two different sections for posting ads about job openings, each of which carries different connotations for the type of work found within. The main help wanted space on the site is the Jobs section, which offers an extensive number of employment categories covering employment areas such as customer service, technical, transportation, skilled labor and hospitality, with postings typically focusing on part-time or full-time positions. The other section is the Gigs category, which contains fewer employment distinctions and primarily contains one-time or short term job listings. Similarly, both HelpWanted.com and LocalHelpWanted.com contain various types of job postings, with features that allow users to specify a specific region in which to browse listings.

Local newspapers are another helpful resource for help wanted ads because they often are low cost or allow free postings and reach a different segment of the population than Web postings. Career centers at local colleges and schools also often feature ads from local businesses looking to hire employees, as do the community boards of libraries and coffee shops.
