A number of people use craigslist to find jobs as well as advertise jobs. It is one of the biggest online networking places with lots of opportunities. If for example a person is looking for house cleaning Cambridge service, it is just a matter of going to the site and looking for people offering that service and then contacting them. But at the same time, there are so many negative stores about employees and employers found on craigslist. So before anyone opts to use it to advertise a job or a service, it is best to take the following pros and cons into consideration.

Pros of Craigslist

One of the biggest pluses especially for people looking for employers is the fact that it is free. Unlike many other advertising options like newspapers of online internet auctioning sites, craigslist does not require any payment to post an advertisement. All an individual would need is a functioning email address and they can sign up and place their ad for whatever service. For example, a person who would like to offer move in/out cleaning service can easily place the ad for that service and then place another ad for a few people who will help to do the actual cleaning and the cost would still remain free compared to a newspaper that would charge for 2 advertisements.

Another advantage is the fact that there are so many options on the site which means the competition is high thus prices remain affordable. This is especially an advantage for employers since they have a large pool of possible employees who would be willing to undercut the price of another so that they can get the job. If for example you are looking for housekeeping Boston service, you will be able to make a choice of so many possible candidates so the price will be minimal.

When you look at the effort needed to get an employer or employee on craigslist, it is evident that not much has to be put in. After placing the ad on the site, you can sit back and wait for responses. This is because there is high traffic to this website so you do not have to worry a lot about attracting people to the site as it would be if you used a personal website to advertise a job or service. What's more the system is structured in such a way that adverts are location specific so the ad reaches people within your location of operation for example if you are in Cambridge offering cleaning services or searching for cleaning service, the adverts you receive will be for house cleaning Cambridge only.

Cons of Craigslist

One of the major cons of searching for employers or employees on craigslist is that there is no control over the quality of service or employment offered on the website, once you contact someone via email, it is up to the 2 parties to ensure their own interests are protected. If say you hire moving in/out cleaning service and they do a bad job, you cannot seek the help of craigslist to get a refund for the lack of satisfaction.
