Hi Camille, I have two thoughts about your proposal of a separate list for job position notices: 1. It would require someone to set up and maintain such a list. Are you volunteering? 2. Job seekers would have to know that the list existed. Right now, the AUDITORY list is fairly well known. Also those of us who regularly read it will often re-direct the job notices to students and others who are not list members, and suggest that they join the list to receive future notices. This is one way that new people hear about the list. Cheers, Al On Sun, Mar 25, 2012 at 1:49 PM, Peres, S.
