Re: SUMMARY - NANOG Recruiting BOF!

Hi again, folks - I have some clarifications to make and I wanted to post
my summary.

First and foremost, i'd like to make an apology to those who misinterpreted
this post.  I have no intention of making this any kind of a formal BOF
proposition to the program committee, and no desire for NANOG meetings
to turn into recruiting events.  

Secondly, this group i've created has no official affiliation with

Third and finally, the BOF is really just a network to share leads.  We
all know how hard it is to find positions today, so we're focusing on that.
I got a lot of responses - some have been searching for jobs in excess of
six months.  It's pretty miserable, and I agree with other posters that it
indicates at least something of an operational issue, since I know at least
some of us have had to deal with RIFs at people we buy transit or services
from, thus making it much harder to get problems resolved and fixed (or
even to get installations pulled off).

I've created a Yahoo! group for this purpose, at:

Several leads have already been posted.  I invite you to become a member
through the web interface, or by sending mail to me, if you're interested
in helping.  This will be my last post to nanog on the issue - there will
be no further reminders that this group exists.

I'll offer additional services, or at the very least a redirector, at
the nanog-jobs site as we expand.  There's already a database there of
leads, and other information.

Thanks for all the great responses and votes of support.  I'll post more
to the nanog-jobs mailing list with some more detail.
