Hello Fellow SUNNIES,
As I continue to expand and grow, I am facing a serious problem. I can`t find reliable employees!
What am I doing wrong? Is it me or I just can`t find the right candidates?
Let me give you an example of what Im writing about.
As you know Im a web developer/Designer in the Southern California Area.
For the past three years the company has been growing rapidly. So I decided to rent an office and hire some people. About a month ago, I was looking for someone with basic html, and general coding experience to help me with a few projects.
After interviewing a few people; I came across a good resume "so I thought".
On her resume, she seemed like she knew what she was talking about. She talked the web design lingo so I said "You`re hired"
DAY 1. Didn`t know how to create a new site in "dreamweaver studio", her excuse: I use a different version of Dreameaver... But Dreamweaver`s ftp hasn`t changed in the last 6 releases....
DAY 2. Didn`t know how to create roll-over buttons or a navigation bar. So I had to do it myself. She took the project into her own hands and changed the navigation bar to something that looked my 2 year old daughter could do.
DAY 3. Collapsed a customers web site, because she didn`t have knowledge of css or extended html.
DAY 4. Requests if I can change her projects because she doesn`t work with templates nor anything she doesn`t develop. So I had her start on a new project. She didn`t even know how to start a layout.
DAY 5. "You are fired" <---Trump style
After putting an add on the news paper for more than 2 weeks... My question is where can I find reliable people?? I don`t want to outsource to "Maleek" In INDIA or BORIS in RUSSIA... I want to find talented people here in the US. I believe in Keeping jobs in America.
Where do I start? I went to Monster but their Price is too high for searching their database. Does anyone know where I can post free ads or if not free at least 100 bucks per posting.. and please do not tell me craigslist or myspace.com.
I think Start Up Nation needs an Employment posting too.

When starting your own business the need to "know-how" is greater than money!
