I have been on here for 3 or 4 weeks and have sent out my resume looking for a contract job and I do not get people responding.

Has anyone out there got their next gig thru this site?

Chris - just my $0.02 here but...

Blogs are about dialogue and interaction. Not resume and work solicitation. While a benefit of a blogging portal such as this one is indeed the ability to connect with persons that may have opportunities to share I think that its original mission was to give recruiters a place where they could congregate and share great ideas and thoughts... a community of recruiters and driven by recruiters. (if Jason spots this and I'm way off base I'm open to getting corrected, of course.)

You'll find several postings and messages sent out here about working opportunities, but I think you're more likely to find great networking contacts and relationships first... that could possibly lead to what you're immediately looking for today.

A few things you might consider here on RBC...
Begin a quick blog to showcase your expertise or background.
Expand a bit on your profile - focusing on your availability and work history.
Find more groups and discussions to participate in.

If social networking for your next gig really isn't of any interest to you... you might want to give a look at services like www.RecruitAlliance.com - where you can freelance recruiting work quickly and easily (and that gives you an easy foot in the door at some larger companies.) The first month is free and it's only $75/mo. after that.
There are others... that one just comes to mind since I was on the phone with them for a few hours yesterday. :-)

Hope you find what you're looking for... and you stick around RBC!!! (I just sent you a connection request.)

:D
yeah yeah yeah
