New forum idea

How about a GL4x4 Networking forum?

With so many people out of a job, a dedicated forum would keep all postings together and not let them get lost in the Pub.

Jobs would be anything that you hear about, doesn't matter what field.

From some articles I have been reading, a lot of companies don't advertise on their own websites and the big job sites (i.e. Monster and Career Builder) have so many listings for Dish Network installers and Army/Navy jobs along with Vector Marketing, it is hard to find a legit job posting. Craigslist is plagued by so many scam listings it is rediculous.

Just throwing it out there.

My wife needs a job.

This isn't a "new" idea. It has come up and been shot down a few times. Primary reason is that it draws an undesireable element as a result of Google hits.


Motown Muscle has a "job" forum. Take a look.

Would a locked forum eliminated this?

They must have either removed the job forum or I have to be registered to see it.

x2?

Only communication would be through PMs and not direct postings.

Maybe make posting in that thread available to people with x amount of posts or more.

No. The point is that you don't want a bunch of unemployed people that are not affiliated with the hobby to be drawn here, see that GL is fun, register, stay, and then whine about their problems in the Pub. We already have enough of those.

Well, she has a BS in Architecture but it doesn't have to be in that. She has been looking for Design, CAD, Graphic Design and any State jobs that don't require a degree in a different field.

He unemployment ran out at the end of july but if the new extention covers her, then we are okay for a bit but still, she is making half of what she was when she was employed.

She has a bachelors in Architecture. But anything related might be good. She kicks ass at CAD and she can do graphic design.
