Clicking on the job categories brings up a list of jobs posted by date, starting with the current date and working backwards. The jobs posted contain brief descriptions, a parenthetical indication of which city it is in, and the word "Pic" to indicate if there are any pictures inside the post. Clicking on the job description brings up the full post with relevant information about the job as well as the preferred method of contact. Most posts can be replied to via email by clicking on Reply, though some may offer a phone number, and others may require either in-person application or online application through their own websites.

Craigslist also maintains a list of "gigs" that are also broken into separate categories such as "creative" and "labor." Gigs are typically shorter-term jobs or jobs limited to the duration of a special event, though these positions may grow into something more permanent. The process for browsing and applying for gigs is identical as for other jobs on Craigslist.

Because individuals can advertise jobs for free on Craigslist, there is a high likelihood of scam positions being posted. Read Craigslist's warning about avoiding scams, and be very cautious about providing any information to individuals electronically.
