Want Your Input on SQL Server Job Postings

    As you probably know, there are two options on this website for job postings. One is in the forum and the other is as:http://sqlserv.tech-engine.com/

    I would like any input on either of these. What is good and what is bad.

    I also would like to hear from you where (what websites) you use to find out more about potential SQL Server jobs.

    I am considering a new option to replace both of these options, and am looking for ideas.

    I think we have had this discussion earlier and started a seperate forum for job postings.
    I believe both job posters and seekers will have more interest on the forum than a seperate website, but still we can stick the information to check similar information on the job website as well.

    I believe there is a variance in the job sites as compared to USA & Europe, it is good to consolidate the information at one place.

    I kind of like having the forum...websites are generally focused on only one country, whereas the forum allows people from any country to post and look at jobs.

    The websites i use are all Australian ones (possibly Australian versions of international sites- i dont know!): www.seek.com.au, www.monster.com.au, www.mycareer.com.au, and then some specific recruitment agency sites as well.

    I think that the forum is a good place for such offerings. Like satya said, there the information is at one place for all to see and search. Personally I think using a specialized "job-engine" plug-in is probably beyond the scope of a community site.

    And speaking from a legal point of view (at least here in Germany), I'm really not sure, that everybody can do such job services. AFAIK, one needs special permissions for this.

    I have to agree that for non-US jobs, a forum is the best option. And because of this, I would continue with it. Perhaps I could change the focus of the topic and focus on international jobs only and then put US jobs in a separate job posting system. What do you think?

    On the other hand, the forum for US jobs is not very efficient. There are some postings, but not a lot. The current job posting service I offer on the website (third party) is not very good, in my mind, and I want to replace it with a better one.

    Also, has anyone actually gotten a job from either the forum or the job posting service on the website? That would be interesting to know.

    If you have some idea to improve the service for the community, well why not go ahead and try.
