Hi,

We're located in a metro area of 1 million. We're looking to hire a coder with little to moderate experience, preferably on a 2 - 3 month contract.

Quick Questions:
1.  Is something like Monster.com the best way to find somebody?

2. Do coders want to work on a  2-3 month contract? Our idea is to test them on contract and make them an employee if they're competent enough.

We can conduct a good interview, but I'm a bit clueless on the best way to get people TO the interview.

Thanks for your time

If you want a coder for a specific application you can get one on the internet. I'm thinking in www.getacoder.com for instance.

If you want to hire a coder to work on your office, that's another thing. If this is the case, you can put and ad on the jobs sites that are on your country or you can contact your local work agency. Normally, to work for 2-3 month contract they will work like some kind of "consultant".

Hope I've helped.

Look in the profiles of experts in the appropriate zone and you will find that many of them will take on project work.

RentaACoder is another possibility.

Recruiting on-line, you will that find that many candidates will only be able to work remotely. This may not suit your situation.

Another possibility is to look at www.elance.com - i've got coding jobs form there in the past, it's a good place to find all sorts of programmers for any sort of job.

Then it would appear my suggestion is completly useless to you.

Chris, that is true - but after looking at ELance, it seems to be setup better than rentacoder. Although I don't need this now, the information is far from useless to me in the long-run. Thanks for your time
