Do you offer a job? Not true?
I have experience Web Developer.
Yes, we are offering a Job. We are looking for locals
Thank you, I'm working remotely. freelance
Have you attended your local Drupal User Group? I see you're in Chicago so there's a few bigger agencies who probably suck up all the talent who want to work locally. Many Drupalers work remote and it can often be the best way to get projects done as often they vary widely between project especially in agencies, unless they're focused.
There's a number of apprentice-type schemes people are graduating from depending on what skills you need. It's also good to cross-train which is a lot easier with Drupal 8 as based on industry-standard programming principles - Drupal 7 generally needs an experienced developer hence why there's a lack of them.
There's also jobs.drupal.org if you haven't advertised on there.
Otherwise unless you're lucky it's a case of working out what you can offer that will make people want to join your company as opposed to the other options available.
...ah I see you're not near chicago sorry! There'll still be a user group somewhere near, check out http://drupical.com
It's out near Philly, shouldn't be hard to get candidates. There's a lot of Drupal shops in Philly and http://www.drupaldelphia.com/ which is held annually.

If there is no Drupal group near you, perhaps you should think about starting one? Be careful not to be a vampire and just start it for your own purposes... reach out and see if others in your area would help get it going and then you will see how it grows feeds the developers in your town/area. I advise starting small with a meeting at a local coffee shop to gauge interest.
Just be considerate of others that want to share and others that need help!
Agaric also does a weekly online meeting to share tips and knowledge and help people overcome issues. http://agaric.com/show every Monday at 1pm EST. There should be lots more of these meetings!

You are more than welcome to use the Philadelphia Meet Up group to host and promote a meeting http://www.meetup.com/drupaldelphia
FYI -- We've had mixed success in the past getting people to come out to meetings in the burbs, but it's worth a try.
