@ Jonathan SIlverstein; Welcome to the TreeBuzz forum, Jonathan! I hope you experience some success finding the people you're looking for.

One question about your post above. In question #8 that you posed, you never answered your own question, as expanded on in the parenthesis. Namely, what is the range of wages being offered for this position?

The reason I ask is that I always get the feeling that people who are not up front with the wages that are available are trying to get folks into a closing situation in which they will end up offering low money for the skills they are seeking. It's probably not true in your case; I'm just trying to convey how the ad strikes me as a person reading it.

I think being more open as to what you might be offering to folks may be more likely to generate interest in the offers put forward.

Thanks for your patience with me, and for any responses you choose to give.
