Pop quiz: Where do you watch for job postings?

Hi all, I’m looking for some advice on where we should be putting an
advert if we are looking to hire a full time rails developer? Or turning
it around what websites (or mailing lists) do folks here use to if they
feel the need for a change in view from their desk?

A few details to narrow down scope since it might affect the advice,
apologies in advance, trying to NOT make this an advert in itself:

  • We are based in London
  • Looking to hire local, permanent staff
  • Small company looking for self reliant people who can work
    independently

Thanks for some thoughts

I look at posts on here, on LRUG and on Jobsite.

Given that you’re looking for local folks, you’ll definitely be best
served
by local sources like lrug.org. I would also strongly recommend that
you
not limit yourself to posting on board or a list. You’ll greatly
improve
your chances if you invest the time to introduce yourself to the
community
in person. Attend a LRUG meeting or two. Go buy a round at a local
hacknight. Etc.

Best regards and good luck!

Off the top of my head: here, local RUG email lists (especially local
to jobs demanding onsite work), the major job boards (Monster,
CareerBuilder, etc.), the job boards on Ruby sites (like Working with
Rails) and software development sites (like Joel on Software), and
“word of keyboard” referrals from friends.
