RE: SE job opportunities - Chicago

There seems to be a difference of opinion on the list regarding this issue.


During the H1-B discussion, I mentioned that prior to hiring the visa worker, I posted

Ads in the Chicago Tribune, Career Builder and in a valiant attempt

To recruit a qualified US SE.



As I was subsequently told by various list members, THAT was the wrong thing to do…

I should not do a mass listing, like in a newspaper or on a website!


According to these folks, I should, in fact contact the SEA’s direct, as I am doing now by posting on this list.




I realize of course, that all these methods are good ways to attract candidates…


It just goes to show that you can’t please all of the people all of the time!!!!!!

Whenever I am hiring (such as now), I start by placing a classified ad in the Sunday Edition of the Dallas Morning News.  This newspaper is read throughout Texas and beyond.  In addition, the ad is automatically posted on the Dallas Morning News website, which is visited by job-seekers worldwide.  Resumes flow in from all sorts of exotic places, from Pennsylvania to Pakistan.

When compared to Chicago, Dallas offers higher salaries, lower taxes,

better weather, and much better football and basketball!
