Craigslist Job Meta-Search

April is here and the job search is starting to get frantic. In the past I have found that popular job sites like are too swamped with resumes to justify sending applications. I like the local feel of Craigslist but find it almost impossible to do a nationwide search for potential employers. I wanted to build an instrument that would search all of Craigslist at once and return only the relevant hits, along with a url for the job posting. This would dramatically improve my ability to find unique job openings not listed in the more popular databases.

Now that I have a working version of the tool, it won’t be hard to create tabs on the user form to search for other types of Craigslist content, like housing and items for sale.
