Be sure that whenever you meet anyone for an initial interview, it is in a public place. Always be sure to research the company you will be working for.
Drive around your area and look for actual job postings in the area. The most popular places to look are restaurants like pizza places and car washes or other small businesses. Apartment communities and home builders often hire sign holders seasonally as well.
