Re: [newtech-1] Protocol for job posts

From: Ross S.

There are a billion other places to post jobs including this groups job board.

Job postings do nothing to forward the conversation, and only serve the of a microcosm of the list.

Therefore they don't belong here.

A) I'm not a recruiter.

B1) I don't want to trawl the jobs board. I'm not thaaaat interested.
C) I don't want this list flooded with job offers because it is pretty amazing as it is right now.

Given these constraints, I'm hoping we as a community can adopt an unwritten, mutually beneficial protocol when it comes to job posts.

1) Subject starts with "NYTM_Job:". This will help us set up filters moving such emails away from the main mail flow.
2) People identify themselves as recruiters clearly.

I'm pretty sure (they posted a job here today) and other such well known companies (wasn't some fashion magazine trying to hire via NYTM a few weeks ago?) will get a free pass while other less well known recruiters will get their head blown off.

As a group, I'd rather level the playing field for all job posters rather than accept the implied credibility of a well known brand names. Adoption is obviously voluntary but if we self police and encourage better citizenship from recruiters, it's most definitely a win-win IMHO.
