When I look for someone to offer a bumvertising contract to, the most important thing to me is where they are already working. I ask how long they plan to stay, and then I ask them if they would like to work with me on an advertising project. -The relationship is mutually beneficial and optional for both parties. I have asked people in the past who have refused to participate.
