I am Erik and I am new to this forum.
I run an e-commerce company: <snip URL>. I came here because I need to recruit contractors for my business, and I thought this place might be an interesting fishing pond.
I've tried in many places already, but a lot of candidates shy away from doing our contractor test.
However, if we don't do the test, then the new contractor's first client will become the test; who usually dislikes this kind of situation, and starts balking, as if there were no tomorrow ...
Sometimes I need more contractors, sometimes more clients. It is easier to find good clients than good contractors. Anybody who runs any kind of business, will confirm this to you.
So, I happen to be in the annoying part of the business cycle. But then again, joining Daniweb looks like a pleasant part of the things my job sometimes requires me to do. Done.
