GeneralI'm looking to hire a "junior" programmer. Pin

First: I hate my boss and am looking to move to another job because he micro-manages me, and knows nothing about programming.

Second: He's one of my best friends, and I don't want to leave him in the lurch.

Third: As I am older, and with the pandemic raging, and the way people drive in New Orleans, I could die at any time.

Having said that, I have gotten him to agree to hire some younger programmer, so that that guy and I could do some"Team Programming" together, and I could teach him my code, and he could eventually take over, when I die or get a new job, whichever comes first.

The job would pay around 35K per year. The program is written is VB6, but if I could find someone that is familiar with VB.Net getting him up to speed would be easy.

So, two questions. Do you think I have a chance of finding someone at that pay level, since 60K to 65K if the going rate here, for really experienced programmers?

Second question, is there a particular web site that I should use? In other words, where do you go when looking for a job?

Any help, that doesn't criticize VB6 (I started writing this program in 1980), would be sincerely appreciated.
