    Need to hire somebody

    I need to hire a salesman. I've run ads in the usual industry places as well as LinkedIn, and Craigslist, and haven't had much luck yet, just one resume that didn't pan out. Obviously I need to post the position somewhere that's going to get more responses. Is careerbuilder my best bet at this point?

    Definitely outside, well a mixture of outside and inside I guess. We're an expedited trucking company and we're looking to expand our customer base, so we're looking for sales people to talk to companies that need to ship expedited freight and expand our base of direct customers. Currently we do a lot of brokered freight. I'll be starting out with someone in Cincinnati and if things go well there I'll look for people in other metro markets.

    Cool - what is the name of your company? I work at a distribution company, expedited freight is sometimes needed.

    I broke down and spent the money for a listing on career builder and I received two resumes within 30 minutes of the listing being active.

    Good luck with your search. Finding good, dependable help is the absolute most important issue for a business if the business model etc. is sound.

    Re: Need to hire somebody

    Well, I hired a young guy last week and he's starting this coming week. He has some sales experience and a decent working knowledge of the trucking industry. We've also been approved for a lease on a nice office/warehouse space in West Chester. I'm going to miss working from home, but we're at the size where we need to move into an office and start hiring help.

    My experience has LinkedIn and CareerBuilder being the best. Monster is garbage unless you're looking for insurance salesmen. I'll have to get my resume in, I don't think I've ever noticed your link in your sig LOL.

    Congrats, BTW
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
