To see your post, go to the category for your job. You may need to REFRESH or RELOAD the page if your job does not appear in your browser—the refresh/reload should be near the top of your browser window.
Not in jobs categories. These happenings can however be posted under "events."
Yes, but please use HTML sparingly. We don't try to wrap HTML around your URLs if we see HTML tags including <a>, <li>, <p>. We just pass through your HTML unchanged.
Check the list of supported HTML tags and attributes for more details.
Note: If you use HTML in any part of your posting you must use it throughout.
One job description per job post please. As a rule of thumb, job titles should be singular, not plural.
American Express, MasterCard, and Visa are accepted. In most cases, you will enter your credit card information at the end of the posting process, and your card will be charged immediately.
If you use a craigslist account to post your job, we will send you an invoice and you can use your credit card to pay your invoice. Once you receive your invoice, go to our online invoice payment form. You'll need the invoice number and the original billing email address (this information is on your email or paper invoice). You can use this form to pay for any old invoices that you may have as well.
If you have any questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our online credit card payment forms are encrypted using industry standard 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. Your credit card information is relayed (using the same encryption method) to a payment processor, which charges your account.
No. Multi-level marketing opportunities, "club memberships," distributorships or sales representative agency arrangements, and other business opportunities which require up front or periodic payment, and/or require recruitment of other members, distributors or agents are prohibited.
Focus group opportunities can be submitted in the "et cetera" jobs category.
We ask that you post the job in the general geographic location of where the position is located. The idea is that if someone is looking for a position in Seattle, they would visit the craigslist Seattle site.
This local community approach is what craigslist is all about.
If the location is not relevant to the position, please choose just one city site.
