I am curious as to why you believe that the candidates that
you seek "are likely not on [the] MA-JOBS" mailing list. Is
the caliber of the participants on _this_ mailing list (or the
DC LUG list) higher than on the MA-jobs mailing list? Or are
the participants hereon more likely to have the necessary
FWIW, I have not been able to discern much about the nature of
the participants on the MA-jobs list notwithstanding that I
have been on that list for years. Apparently, the participants
thereon use it primarily for posting job vacancies rather than
discussion. On that list, there appears to be little
discussion of, say, the job market, IT employment, IT
employers, or jobs generally.
I look upon the MA-jobs list as read only. I look for jobs there. Not
being an employer, I don't post.
If I see an employer or headhunter posting on any other list, I do not
think well of them, and I would not be likely to apply for the position.
