Our local paper quoted me $495.00 to run a small help wanted ad for 6 days, with 30 days of online visibility. They use monster.com for the online portion.
Monster.com charges $395.00 for the same ad for 60 days, but of course no print in local paper. Because of a fluke I ended up getting the Monster.com ad for free, so of course I made the choice to run that one!
I have gotten Deluged with resumes in the last 24 hours. Unbelievable. And this is for an entry level no experience, part-time almost minimum wage type job. Crazy! I wish I owned stock in Monster.
