Posting Jobs

I am a new user to googlegroups and wanted to ask if I am allowed to
post jobs to this group. I currently work for Intuit and am recruiting
Software Engineers / Architects for California, Boulder CO, and
Waltham, MA. All with either Java, C++ or C# experience.

I do not want to post if this is not an accepted practice on this list.
Can someone please advise. Also, if this is not an appropriate
googlegroup to post software engineering positions, if there is a
better site can you please let me know.

Thank you so much for your time

I personally don't like jobs being posted here - there are enough C#
jobs around that if it took off as a trend, the signal to noise ratio
would go right down.

See http://www.pobox.com/~skeet/csharp/jobs.html

This is only my personal opinion, however.

GailIntuit,
I strongly suspect that if you post at the major job boards where people are
actually looking for a job, you'd have more results anyway. Monster,
Careerbuilder, Dice, etc.

A little late to be "so concerned" now that you have provided your email
address and pretty much told us where the jobs are!!!

It should also be noted that for a recuriter to post job openings for
technical jobs in an inappropriate venue, it gives the impression (to
professional developers) that the recruiter is not technically knowledgable,
and forms an initial negative impression of the potential job/company.
Therefore, this lessens the probability of obtaining responses from
experienced professionals, and conversely increases the probability of
getting resumes and replies from less-experienced candidates.

Any experience you can walk away from
is a good one.

Advertising 101: Try to get your advertising posted for free by announcing to
newspapers etc. that you will be hiring and listing the type of jobs you will be
interviewing for. This is a "public info" stunt that has been taught since I
took advertising in high school (many years ago).


Good luck with your project,
