Linux Foundation Launches Jobs Board

The Linux Foundation is launching Thursday an online jobs board for employers looking for Linux talent and job seekers looking to provide it.

The foundation's Linux Jobs Board is available on Linux.com. It features two options for posting: Jobs can be posted on Linux.com only, with prices starting at $99 for 15 days, or jobs can be posted on both Linux.com and with JobThread Network, which reaches more than 50 additional publishing sites with a combined total of 9.8 million visitors per month. The Linux.com and JobThread Network option costs 49 cents per matching view.

"Linux's increasing use across industries is building high demand for Linux jobs despite national unemployment stats," said Jim Zemlin, executive director at the foundation, in a statement released by the foundation. "Linux.com reaches millions of Linux professionals from all over the world. By providing a jobs board feature on the popular community site, we can bring together employers, recruiters, and job seekers to lay the intellectual foundation for tomorrow's IT industry."

Job postings can be submitted on Linux.com.

JobThread Network, according to the foundation, has found that demand for Linux-related jobs has grown 80 percent since 2005.

Job seekers, meanwhile, can include LinkedIn details on their Linux.com profile, including resumes. They also can subscribe to the Linux.com Jobs Board RSS feed and receive e-mail alerts. Additionally, they can follow Linux-related job opportunities on Twitter.
