Hiring from Craigslist  

This summer, at Woobius, we hired some interns. We used a British-centric equivalent called GumTree, and it worked well, even for programming interns. The article proposes a repeatable process for successfully hiring from Craigslist:

  1. Create an informative ad with the right information
  2. Create an application form with the right questions
  3. Post to Craigslist and wait for the applications
  4. Select the 10 best applicants and send them 2 further, very detailed questions
  5. Interview the 3-4 people you like best in person
  6. Hire!
