Hi, I am NOT trying to solicit users / post a job here but am curious where one might go to find a good source of freelance Cisco folks?  I have posted to Craigslist & Guru.com.  Guru yields a million folks from India (post says local only) & Craiglist has done little if anything.
Thank you.

Possilby place an ad in your local newspaper under the help wanted section?  It's not free but it shouldn't cost too much.

Also look in your area for any computer groups, clubs or professional IT organizations.

If somebody is looking for work, then yes, I do.  My job is going to be eliminated in the next couple of months and I am looking at ALL resources no matter how archaic they may be.

Are you on linkedin?  http://www.linkedin.com/

I'm getting quite a few job notifications that are in my area of experience by notifications from that site.

How is your network admin job being phased out?

Outsourced.  The whole IT dept.  We've known for about 2 months and have 2 months to go.  We are getting a decent severance package so I'm not too upset.  Just using this time to get my certs current and get lots of lab/practice time.

That is a long term worry for all I am sure.  Amazon may end up the worlds IT guy....
