Lately I've seen several ads in the newspaper placed by recent college graduates. These ads advertise their services for programming. Basically, I'm a recent graduate, here's what I know, call me.
Are they large adds in the business section, or one of 10,000 classified adds?
They are classified ads in the "Employment Wanted" section.
As a job hunter, it sounds like a waste of money, even if it was free.
It might be better in the business section. They're gambling that someone out there - a small business owner without an HR infrastructure or existing programmers to help him interview, needs someone to do some programming and will run across his ad.
Nobody hires consultants using want ads. And even fewer look for consultants advertising in the want ads.
Only one way to find out if they work: TRY! The nay-sayers will always say "nay."
