How Craigslist Finally Paid Off

Job Hunt, Reporting, Social Media

My Craigslist trolling finally paid off last week in the form of a three-day conference gig. But, it gets better. Not only did I meet some great people (with some other freelancing opportunities), there’s also the opportunity to keep working for the guy that hired me in the first place.

My days were spent taking notes, writing blog posts and Tweeting—all from atop a perch on the stage. The setup was a little bizarre—as you can see to the left—but people seemed to enjoy it. It certainly started a lot of conversations with people who otherwise might not have bothered.
