CentOS wiki section for job postings?
 
Jim Perrin mentioned a job opening on the CentOS list yesterday. I'd
like to do the same, but I'm leery of contributing to topic drift. Is
there any interest in creating a job-board section of some kind on the
wiki?

Anyone have experience with unusual problems that such a section might cause?

you dont want job postings to stay online for years do you ?

I'd guess something that 'moves on' might be a better way of doing job
postings for CentOS. Wiki perhaps not.

How about a section in the forums, then once positions are filled the
thread could be removed from public view. It would seem a better option
than either mailing lists or the Wiki.

I recall jobs being advertised on the fora in the past, IIRC.

Then there are 'employment opportunities' ads. As we speak, someone
just posted to the CentOS forum looking for a sysadmin for their
company.

For some reason, I'd still prefer a centos-jobs list. It's simply the
geek's medium for communication ;). I like stuff being pushed to my
mailbox, rather than having to visit some site to keep up.

Many other projects also have a -jobs list, doesn't seem to be a problem there.

On the other hand google is rather fast indexing well known and fast
changing pages, so job offers probably will show up in google pretty
soonish.

But yes, I'd be all in favour for a CentOS-jobs list - which has to be
linked to from some prominent places. Too bad that pipermail doesn't
offer any rss feeds from mail list archives ...

Cheers,

Ralph

a -jobs list sounds good to me, do you want to bring this up on the
centos-devel list and we can take it from there ( since we dont actually
have an admin list, i guess the -devel list is the best place for this
sort of a thing )


w.r.t rss feed etc, well - we can work that out, and make it happen :D

Also, are there any general guidelines for jobs lists ? should they be
only moderated ? should they be open lists ?

No problem with that.

I only know that from usenet: You have a moderated jobs group for
job-openings and/or job-requests (do we want that? I don't think so) -
and an unmoderated discussion list for those offerings. But I don't
think we want that either, as that often can lead to nice flame wars
about job offerings.

But if there is to be a list for offers, it should be moderated -
if only to check offers for sanity. This has two advantages: Weed out
jobs which don't meet "standards" (Is it a CentOS related offer? Is it
some "work from home" snowball scheme?) and people who want to offer
jobs do not have to subscribe to the mailing list.

We have to set those standards before opening such a list - that
probably should be done on -devel, as it clearly has nothing to do with
documentation >:)

Cheers,

Ralph
