Here’s a great example of a Craigslist advertisement for a Subject Matter Expert. The hiring decision maker was looking for very specific experience, to quickly solve a problem for her. She obviously didn’t care about generalist skills on the candidate’s resume.
I wonder how many responses she had to choose from? Did she search by keyword to separate the wannabes from the killer resumes? What keywords did she search?
This news hit the internet yesterday about a different kind of “contractor” advertized on Craigslist. Kids, don’t try this at home.
