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 NANOG. 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: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nanog-jobs 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. Sincerely, Tim
