Santa Fe is a small community – the best way to seek a job or project is through personal contacts and networking. Patience may be required, and opportunities are not as prevalent as in larger cities. The Chamber Business Directory can help you contact local businesses. Go to http:// www. santafechamber.com/ employment. html for more information. The Santa Fe Chamber does not maintain a list of job postings, but does have members that can assist with job searches and placement.
