FRUUG Job Posting Policies

The shortage of good technical talent is getting ever more acute, and with the members of the Front Range UNIX Users' Group constituting the most talented group of open systems professionals in the Boulder/Denver area, it's no wonder that we are deluged with requests from search firms. We are currently getting several calls daily from recruiters and, since many of you are asking us the same questions, we'd appreciate it if you would read this page and know your options before you call.

We'd like to do what we can to help you get word out, however none of us on the Executive Committee has time to try to play match-maker between our 200-400 members and the jobs that you have open. So please resist the urge to call and ask us: "do you know of anyone..." Instead, please consider the options below:

  • The easiest way to reach our members is to simply send us some literature to put out at our next meeting. You're also welcome to come to our next meeting and make an announcement as well. Please refer to our on-line meeting announcement for information about our next meeting. If this Web page contains out-of-date information, it means that our next meeting is not yet scheduled. Meeting announcements are posted approximately two weeks in advance, and we meet roughly once a month. If you wish to send us literature, please refer to our contact information for a mailing address

  • The FRUUG job posting Web page has become a popular way to reach FRUUG members who are actively looking for new opportunities. Lone Eagle Systems is now responsible for maintaining the job posting pages, and there are two ways in which you can participate in this medium:

    • If you already post available positions on your own Web site, we'd be happy to provide a link to your site on our Web page at no cost to you. Please e-mail the link to gaede at and let us know that you'd like it to be added to the FRUUG job posting page.

    • If you wish us to post your content, we can do so for a charge of $50 for a three-month posting. This charge goes to Lone Eagle Systems to defray the cost of the time involved to maintain the job posting Web site. Please send your job description and contact information in html to gaede at Please limit your content to about a page, and do not include graphics. We will post your content on receipt of a check written to Lone Eagle Systems Inc. at the address provided with our contact information. We're happy to provide you with an invoice and taxpayer identification number on request.
