    Would be nice to work this mess in here so we can more easily connect those seeking work with those offering it: http://groups.drupal.org/available-for-hire

      Trying to connect on a larger scale, it'd would sweet to have a google map with placemarkers that shows this. Let it be filterable by job available, available for hire, group events.

    I really want this. I have notifications turned off for the Boston Drupal group because it's mostly job postings. But that means if I forget to check it proactively, I miss things I might like to have seen. It would be great if jobs could be separated from other content so you could subscribe to one or the other depending on your interests.

      Perhaps this could be handled like newsletters. Location groups get a general and a jobs stream. Then later the user can choose to turn off the jobs or the local news/events.

    As all people know find resources in Drupal is getting more hard every day. Maybe in a new implementation of job in Drupal.org we can add a testimonial system or rating for freelancer and Drupal workshops.

    With this kind of tools, contractors will have another metric to be used in a hiring process.

    This might be best served as a totally separated Drupal.org environment. Maybe something along the lines of "ODesk.com"?

    The link first suggested above points to a gigantic page, which, as informational as it may be, is overwhelmingly big.
