When I'm looking for work, the main places I look are LinkedIn and Craig's List.

I've never seen job postings on this list. The STC is dead to me.

We've posted the job so far on TECHWR-L and STC, and we've had three temp agencies work on it. Neither of the ads brought a response, and the temp agencies suggested only a few candidates - most of whom didn't even approximately fit the job description.
