Archives of the TeradataForum

I was asked whether we would allow job postings to be made to the TDATA-L Forum. I have mixed feelings over it and I thought that asking the Forum would help me form a policy. Outwardly, I would prefer that the TDATA-L Forum was focused on technical issues (and OK, I'll admit it: the occasional gossip - which has been really absent :->).
I don't mind helping the occasional Teradata site that is having trouble locating talent. I'm not interested in helping recruiters and agencies - they have their own resources and the cost of doing their business should come from their bank account (and not mine).
So in terms of the TDATA-L Forum, what do you think about the posting of job offers?
If we decide to permit job postings, we will require that certain minimum information be included in the post:
- A description of the specific position and responsibilities.
- What job/training experience is needed to qualify for the position.
- The location and name of the employer and salary range (if it's for a consultanting firm, then the name of the firm is sufficient).
- Desired start date (and in the situation of a contract, duration).
The reason for this information is two-fold: It's the kind of information that I would like to see before responding to such a post and it should go a long way in minimizing agencies trolling for resumes/bodies. So in your opinion, what other kinds of information would you want to see before responding to such a post?
Finally, if we permit job postings, those posts must be sent to the TDATA-L List Owners for review and when we agree upon wording, we'll send the offer to the Forum. This is generally spelled-out in the Welcome Letter/Rules of Conduct.
So please speak-up, either on- or off-list.
Thanks in Advance,
