in thread Job Posting Section?

Why? (he asks curiously)

Because jobs.perl.org does not allow job hunters to post resumes.

I don't see the advantage of making employees find and post to two locations, and have job hunters have to look at two sites?

Most employers/job hunters already look at several websites.

    Surely that's an argument for adding that facility to jobs.perl.org rather than going elsewhere.

    Ah. I see. I didn't understand that was what you were after. Sorry.

    It is on the 'not so soonish' todo list. Might be worth volunteering to help implement if you think it worthwhile functionality.

    That said when I've been on the employer side of the fence I've yet to meet anybody who actually uses these sort of service.

    Most employers/job hunters already look at several websites.

    Yup - and this sucks.

    The more places people have to visit the more time and effort is wasted, and the more likely it is that people will miss a site. IMHO it would be a much better idea to encourage jobs.perl.org to become the place you go for Perl jobs.

      Might be worth volunteering to help implement if you think it worthwhile functionality.

      Why volunteer when I can just use the following websites which have this functionality?:

      • Monster.com
      • ComputerJobs.com
      • Dice.com
      • HotJobs.com
      I could list many more. Apparently, they view the functionality as "worthwhile," as do the plethora of job seekers and employers who use the service every day.

        Good question :-) I wouldn't either.

        I read your post as "stuff that jobs.perl.org should have". My bad.

        I'm not trying to say that CV uploads are worthless! Just that, in my experience, employers don't use them.

        The job sites love them since they get tons of demographic info that they can resell, have the opportunity to up-sell their users to training, etc. (Having done some usability work for a certain large job site this was explained to me in excruciating detail :-)

        Users like having CV management services.

        Agents love being able to buy and search bulk lists.

        Employers? Nope. YMMV.
