Dallas/Fort Worth Craigslist publishes thousands of job openings. The site offers some filtering options to help job seekers streamline their searches. Within a category, a search can be done by title. Seekers can ask for only jobs posted that same day or expand the search to nearby areas. Options to filter for part-time or contract work are available.

The job ads are written by the hiring company, which chooses how much information to offer. Some postings are quite detailed with job responsibilities and qualifications, pay rate and benefits information. Others offer only a brief description of the job.

The job posting may state a preferred method of contacting the company regarding the position. If not, every Craigslist job add has a Reply button in the top left corner, which lists an appropriate email address for the hiring company.

Most job postings state the company only wants to hear from actual job seekers and request that recruiters not contact the job poster.
