To post a job in this space, follow these instructions:
Open jobs MUST have an element related to using, managing, developing, or administering GIS. In other words, no random job postings having nothing to do with GIS.
Create a job posting
Add a document toGIS Jobs (From the group's Actions menu, select Document).
Restrict authorship to yourself ONLY. This way the impact metrics are disabled for the post and readers can view the post anonymously.
Copy the job description from your Career or Jobs web site OR you provide some minimal info following this template:
Subject - such as "Looking for a community manager at XYZ Solutions"
Title of the job opening - "Senior Community Manager"
Job status: Full time, part time, contractor, intern, etc.
Closed on - date the posting expires
Always link to your job posting online so that people know where to go for more information.
Select the category for your open position (i.e. GIS Developer). Let Timothy Hales know if categories need to be added.
Include your contact info and be responsive. Since direct messages in the GeoNet community only work if someone is following you and vice versa, be sure to include how interested people can contact you OUTSIDE the GeoNet community (company email address is great). Manage your responses to people who indicate they are interested in your opening. We do not want people to feel like their interest about an opening is going into a black hole.
