perl monks jobs

on Jul 03, 2001 at 18:21 UTC ( #93512=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??


I run Mojolin which is a unix linux and embedded linux job site. I would like to offer an xml feed (.rss or .rdf) to perl monks which lists only the perl jobs which have been posted. You can contact me at

    The last time the idea of a job section came up, it was opposed.

    Job postings and advertisements are generally removed quickly, but this looks more like an actual discussion, which is why I'm replying instead of considering it. Although I think it's definitely not appropriate for Perlmonks (I agree with the reasons given before), who knows, perhaps the stats guy would like to add a job section to his collection of extras.

      Or as mentioned in the CB, he might offer the feed to (Ask Bjørn Hansen) at

    Although something like this is a decision that remains firmly in the lap of vroom, I urge him to consider it. Or at least something like it.

    I believe having a little section with listed Perl jobs in certain areas would be extremely beneficial to every single member of the monastery. I'm not saying the place needs to turn into a jobsite, but how hard would it be to stick "Perl Jobs" in the main menu? How much extra traffic would it bring to the site? Make it a section like Perl News, don't let us reply to job postings and don't let people other than Perl Job Bot post in that section. It would be just like Perl News, but would actually have some up-to-date use {g}.

    I'm not asking for anyone to compromise their beliefs or turn this site into something else, I am merely speaking as a member of a community I love and want to see it flourish.

      Why not just add a jobsites section to outside links
      Under this links could be placed to the perl sections of job boards or an appropriate search string.
