  • Feedback Ask and I have gotten from posters on jobs.perl.org suggests that the success rate for employers there is much higher.

  • I think that jobs.perl.org is focused on a single small topic, and is able to maintain a high S/N ratio. I also think the Perl community is more cohesive than others, and this also adds to it's effectiveness.

  • I think the only successful "job boards" will be those in niche communities, like this one. The big boards are too big. More important, they're not communities. Most jobs (up to 70%) are found and filled through personal contacts. That's what a community is about. It's a place where "due diligence" is a natural part of belonging. No one "belongs" to Monster. On the other hand, if you read the terms and conditions on Monster, you will find that your resume "belongs" to Monster. Another story entirely: http:/
