Job Ad

[ #34897 ]

logicLAB have placed their first job ad on http://jobs.perl.org/.

I have received several applications and some very nice resumes, but none of the applicants are based in Denmark.

So I have responded to all the telecommuters that I will keep their resumes, but I am looking for people capable of being on location.

I specified that there are some on site requirements. I actually do not care whether people show up everyday, as long as you get some exposure and you attend the agreed meeting and get the job done, but telecommuters does not quite fill that hole. If you consider writing a job ad for posting on http://jobs.perl.org/, be aware what you specify when it comes to on site requirements.

Another group of applications is the people applying from abroad, which are willing to relocate to your country, in my case Denmark.

Unfortunately this is not relevant and the election last night did not change this. Getting people from abroad to work in Denmark is practically impossible and I do not have the resources to arrange this.

Currently I am examining alternative solutions and contacting some of all the Perl programmers I know. But it does not look particularly promising.

One plan is to start a company in Sweden, Sweden does seem to embrace foreigners in a more liberal manner than here in Denmark - but even that is resource demanding and I do not have too much time as it looks right now, which is the reason why I am hiring.

  • I'd just like to point out that if your foreign applicants are citizens of a country in the European Union there is practically nothing Danish laws (or indeed your company) can do which would prevent them from moving to Denmark and applying for a job the same way a Dane would. The free movement of persons withing the EU is one of the four essential freedoms [wikipedia.org] that lie at the basis of EU law after all, and significant barriers of other kinds have been broken down (such as the ban on importing pets into the UK

  • I just noticed that your job posting shows up when searching with the "Telecommute only" option. This may be part of the confusion. It seems to me that the "Telecommute only" option should only include "Onsite: none" postings.

    On the other hand, job seekers often act a bit like spammers. Sending their resume to as many people as possible, hoping that one will bite. They often don't pay a lot of attention to the details and requirements. (I've probably been guilty of this myself at times.)
    • I have mailed Ask about this issue, according to the definition.

      A job with no onsite requirement is assumed to be a telecommuting position

      My job posting should not appear in the telecommmuters section, since some on site presence is required.

      I have not heard anything yet.
