$1000 Reward – get me a job, staff or freelance – Graphic Design, Packaging Design, Illustration, Visual Merchandising, Creative Assistance or Technical Design in Apparel, Home Furnishings or Consumer Electronic Products, adult or children's. Sound good?

I am highly skilled in CS3, MS Excel and Word and am familiar with other MSO programs and Flash. I am also experienced in office/studio management, creative assistance, art archiving and design sales.

I've been in this business for 20 years and have never had trouble finding full time work until this spring. So whats the problem? It's not really about skill, but the fact that my resume is buried under tons of others who are in line for the same job. Couple that with a tough economy.

How does this work?

-You give me a lead, which leads to an interview, or you arrange an interview which leads to a full time paying position or full time freelance work (MINIMUM THREE MONTH CONTRACT). BENEFITS ARE NOT REQUIRED.
-The first paycheck, you get 25%.
-The second paycheck, you get 25%
-The third paycheck, you get 25%.
-The fourth paycheck, you get 25%

If the position turns out to be part time or less than three months, we will work out something that's fair - about $500. I am a reputable individual with good references and credit rating.

What I need from this position:
-Ideally, I want a FULL TIME POSITION, staff or freelance. Will consider part time.
-Salary should be 50k or $25 per hour minimum. NO BENEFITS ARE REQUIRED. I am not concerned about the title of the position as long as my salary/fee requirements are met. But I do not work on "spec", as an "intern" or on commission without a salary. I am reasonable and easy to work with.
-Location should be New York City, White Plains, Northern Coastal New Jersey or Western Long Island. Maximum commute - 45 minutes from Penn Station, Grand Central Station, PATH or Port Authority.

What I don't want you to send me:
-Ads that you find ONLINE. I can search that myself, and it's more than likely I've seen it already. 80% of the job market is "closed" meaning they don't post ads, that's what I need access to.
-Career advice, resume services, or services of any kind, unless you have an opening or a contact that needs what I described above.
-Investment schemes or "opportunities".
-Job listings that are outside of my expertise. Read above carefully.

I will send you my resume and portfolio upon request. Please be SPECIFIC about the job requirements. MY SKILLS ARE BROAD. I will not reply to a generic job listing: ie: Graphic Designer, two years experience, White Plains. I will not reply to anyone without a name and email address. I will not reply to a yahoo or gmail address. Serious replies only please. Thank you.

Principals only. I will report any recruiters to craigslist.
