I'll just point out that jobs listings  are just _not_ what this or any
other user group mailing list are about, and that pretty much everyone
knows where to go, to find them[1].  

A couple of other nearby groups have posted jobs policies, which might
be interesting to compare:

SVLUG -- posted here:  http://www.svlug.org/policies/job-policy.shtml
Essentially, jobs postings must go to the moderated jobs mailing list
created for that purpose, and not to the Linux discussion lists.  There
are a couple of other rules about geographic relevance.

BAFUG -- posted here:  http://www.bafug.org/mailman/listinfo/ba-jobs
Again, a dedicated, moderated jobs mailing list, and such postings may
not go to the main discussion lists.

CABAL -- posted here:  http://linuxmafia.com/mailman/listinfo/conspire 
Jobs postings must be submitted via the listadmin, who will decide if
they're appropriate.

general-IT recruiting firms, there are resources like these:
