How to hire someone to run ethernet in a home

So, I'd really like an ethernet cable run across my basement and presented through a standard RJ45 jack at faceplates in two first-floor rooms. I think appropriate locations for faceplates exist. I kind of feel like this is the sort of thing I'd probably do for myself if I were sighted, but I need to hire someone to do it. I'm looking for someone significantly lower budget than a professional networking installer for a business: I need one cable, no punchdown blocks, etc. However I do want someone who can test the cable, etc.

How do you go about finding help for something like this?
