Posting cool jobs?

I’ve been looking for jobs on and off for the past three years, and have often come across roles that look amazing - for someone who is not me! Is there any appetite for allowing Jobs subsite posts that round up links of interesting jobs, or any other part of the site where sharing them would make sense? [more inside]

Metatalktail Hour: My dream job...

If I were to have my dream job, it would probably be a combination of writing Wikipedia articles about notable and under-appreciated people (librarians, artists, historical POC) and being the "Live Zoom link provider" person when I was watching a lecture or attending an event. "Oh hey that person mentioned their book, here's a link where you can read a review or purchase it from a non-Amazon shop." It would be great if that kind of thing paid. What sort of dream job would you like, if you're dreaming? Sky is the limit. Thank you to valkane for the suggestion. [more inside]

Searching for comment on two types of internal hires

Saw a comment earlier (ask, I think) about two types of internal job postings - one where every job was open and people had to apply for each promotion they got, and the other where job decisions were made by leaders behind closed doors and there wasn't much awareness about who was in line. Can you help me find it?

MetaWhat? MetaWho? MetaHuh?

I wanted to know what parts of this community do you sometimes forget, neglect, or outright ignore? Maybe it's lack of interest or maybe it's just something you keep forgetting exists? FanFare? Jobs? AskMeFi? Labs? Chat? Podcast? Are you only on the blue? What part of MetaFilter is pushed to the side?

AskMefi post on Leaning Out?

I'm having trouble finding a post on the Green about jobs that are good for a mid-career professional who doesn't want to do a lot of self-promotion or leadership. I'm pretty sure it wasn't posted within the past year, and I don't recall it being one of the librarianship-specific posts on introvert-friendly careers. Is this ringing bells for anyone else?

This Pony Wants A Job

Right now, it looks like you can make unlimited posts of jobs in the "jobs" section, but you can only post one notice of availability that has to stay forever and can't be changed or added to or bumped up or otherwise flagged that "Hey, I'm still looking". Can we....do something about that? [more inside]

Metafilter LinkedIn Group

Thanks, MeFi Jobs!

There's been a lot of contention on MetaFilter lately (and MetaTalk, too), so I want to take a moment to thank Matt H. and the mods and The Programmer and all of the MetaFilter community because you guys got me my newest employee. I can't be alone in this, and I would love to hear from other people who have found the site of value to them professionally. [more inside]

Searching for a question about becoming in love with your job again

I am having trouble relocating an AskMefi question about having a job that is fantastic in multiple ways, then sliding into becoming less invested/passionate/a good worker/working when one should be working over time, and wanting to hack oneself to appreciate said good job again. Does anyone remember or have better search skills than I do? [more inside]

“The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one.”

Jobsfilter. A year and a half ago, the idea of a jobseeker section for Jobs was broached, but there was no definitive response from the mods. Has there been any movement on this? This would be a wonderful addition for those Mefites who find themselves among the unemployed.

A quick quandry about jobs

I'm looking for someone to partner with on a project, and I would like to post it to jobs. Is it kosher to post something to jobs that is not immediately compensated, but would be paid if success was achieved?

Where should I post this cry for professional web help?

Should I post to Ask or Jobs? Long story, short explanation: I'm looking for someone who can help me understand how my small business can implement a database-driven website, and I'd potentially like to hire that same person to do a relatively small, one-time piece of work based on what I learn.

"Flag it and move on!" "I can't!" "The override, where's the override?!?!?"

Problem A: A Metafilter Jobs post breaks the guidelines, IMO. Problem B: I get a Cold Fusion error when flagging it as breaking the guidelines.

Is there a limit to the number of jobs you can post at one time?

Trying to post three jobs to, well, Jobs. I got one posted. The "new job" link lets me fill out the form again, but no matter what I do I can't get it to post. All fields are filled, no error is being thrown. Is there a limit to the number of jobs you can post at one time?

Closing Dates for Jobs

In the Jobs section: it would be nice if closing dates for jobs was a field to be filled in and displayed within the post. Barring that, this is a request for job posters to not post something if the closing date is the very next day, as was the first posting in this post (imo, even a weeks notice is difficult, but that's more debatable). This applies especially if you have to dig to find the information.

Are there limits for jobs.mefi?

Are there posting frequency limitations for jobs.mefi? I have two positions that just opened up, but when I click "Post" on the second one, it brings me back to the preview screen with no error message. I'm guessing it's because I justed posted one - how long do I need to wait before posting the other?

I hope this is the right place to do it... I just would like to give a great big shout-out to everyone who took time to answer my newspaper job interview and tryout questions.

You all rock, but CunningLinguist, croutonsupafreak, frogan, M.C. Lo-Carb! and game warden to the events rhino rock lots.


And thanks Mr Haughey for making a place where, within minutes, people who had the exact answers I needed were chipping in advice, reassurance and perspective from all over the world. That's pretty damn amazing. You rock too.
