I post ColdFusion (and occasionally Flex) related job listings on this blog, never more than once a week (and usually on Fridays) and sometimes less frequently. For as long as I have been doing this I have had people contacting me (or sometimes leaving comments) asking why I do so, stating that it’s not something that I should use my blog for, and even suggesting that my doing so reflects badly on ColdFusion and the ColdFusion market and community.
So why do I do it? It’s very simple really. This week, at a usergroup event, someone came up to me to tell me that they managed to hire a ColdFusion developer via a post that I recently made. That’s really gratifying. But this week I also received thank you e-mails from two individuals who were out of work and who have found jobs via posts a made. And those messages made my week – to be able to help people that way, honestly, there really is little more gratifying than that.
