Hi!
Has anyone used writingjobsource.com? I have seen their ads on FW. I can't find a cost involved so I am leary.
Thanks,
Kim

Glad you asked about it. Even if something is advertised on FW, it doesn't mean that it's a company you want to work with. I don't know that they have time to check the "pedigree" of every company that pays for advertising space.
