    My business partner and I run an office in downtown manhattan. Right now we are the only two people working here and handle everything ourselves.

    We put up an add for $24000/year job for an office assistant/gofer person to run errands and help out.

    The phone will NOT STOP RINGING!!! We have been getting about 30 calls a day on the add and have 10 people lined up for interviews next tuesday.

    I actually feel so bad taking these calls. Some of the people sound so desperate and have been looking for a long long time to no avail :/. This hope 'n change sucks.

    2. Make them do Fear-Factor stuff to compete

    3. Sell Advertising

    All in the area. We have the hardest time finding good help.
    Our newest hire has been late twice and didn't show up twice in the first 2 weeks. I get to deal with her later since I'm home on butt pee duty.

    Rule of thumb, if we're hiring a non hispanic person, we need to hire 5 people. Hopefully 1 will stick.

    thats when you just give them an email and a fax to send a resume to.
    takes the personal edge off.

    Exactly,
    I have a hell of a time finding engineers in the silicon valley. Everyone is employed down here and hard to find good people.

    We get 1-3 job applications a day, no one really wants to work. People walk in and slap their application down and say, hey, I want a job.....

    Yeah buddy.

    NEXT!

    I don't even get that many applicants... Where are all the workers? Obviously not software developers who are looking for work...
