Working For Free

Earlier this month, a designer in Los Angeles posted the following ad on Craigslist:
Designer Looking For People To Do Their Job Without Pay (Anywhere)


I'm a Graphic Designer and since people on craigslist are always asking me to design logos and websites for free I assume that they must also do their job, or provide their services for free.

I am looking to hire all types of people (no amateurs please) to do all sorts of jobs for me, as long as I do not have to pay anything. Just think, you will gain more experience, and I will put the word out for you and let everyone know what wonderful work you do. Think if it as a piece for your resume! This opportunity will bring you a ton of unpaid work, but everyone will love you. So if you have a job or service you provide, and will do it for free, please let me know because I'm sure I have work for you and I will hire you in a second.

Feel free to email me with the service you can provide, when you can start, and please include references. And just to make sure you read this ad and that you are serious about working with me please put "I Work For Free" in the subject of your email.

I look forward to your free services.

Have a great day,
If you want to know more about the man behind the ad, The Billfold intereviewed him last week.
