These days most of the jobs posted in Job oppurtunities forum has no space for Mainframe jobs at all..

Is it like companies are not looking out for Mainframe professionals or is it being handled through referals

Any one got a fair idea?

Our policy has been to simply Lock job postings.

Would it be better if we deleted postings that are in no way related to the mainframe?

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks,

I wonder how many people really got a job because of these posts

Yes Dick I do wanted to recommend that because every mainframe job hunting person gets down and this would worry them as they don't see jobs for their skill set "IN THESE DAYS"

How about we only let registered recruiters post here?

And by registered, I mean someone who works for an actual firm that has access to actual open jobs.

This would immediately rule out most of the ones I've seen in there.

I think that verifying claims would be too great a burden on mcmillan.

"I think that verifying claims would be too great a burden on mcmillan."

It doesn't have to be mcmillan. If I thought I would be non-biased, I would volunteer. However, I would be so skeptical we'd end up with ZERO postings.

I just get the feeling that someone posting very generic skill sets and having a gmail/yahoo email address is probably a sifter.

I wouldn't even be surprised if these companies listed aren't even HAVING these interview sessions which are being cited. I mean, if it's a walk in, why do you have to send resume ahead of time?

I think it's "The Ladders" here in the USA that gets in trouble for posting jobs on their site by scraping them off of actual company sites. Then they put the salary as >$100,000 dollars for jobs that pay around $35,000. Then they flood the companies with unqualified candidates. Some companies have essentially shut them out.

Something i've seen elsewhere is to require the poster to have a business e-addr - immediately eliminating gmail, yahoo, hotmail etc.

Without additional work for someone specific. We moderators currently lock job postings. I wouldn't mind deleting the "Personal" posts at that time.

I've looked at the contribution from some of these job posters and the only reason some of then are here is to post job listings - hoping to get a "finders fee". If this is a user's only reason to be here, we might consider banning these users . . .

Thoughts?

As I have no use for or interest in those postings, I don't think my opinion should be given any weight one way or the other. I will note, though, that if that forum's use is limited to genuine business recruiters, we might see one post in six months.
