I've been given the task of finding a SQL database architect/data modeler in NYC. I've posted on Craigslist and searched resumes there, to no avail. I'm wary of signing up and paying to search on sites like monster and hotjobs. Can anyone refer me to a place where database resumes/jobs might be searched??
