People who want to apply for a job should know how to handle Google
:). Additionally, I think it normally only useful to skim through the
job offers of the last one or two months.

I think we should restrict this to CentOS (or upstream)-related job
offers, not generic UNIX/Linux-related offers.

No, it does not serve a purpose. If someone want to follow up on an
offer, they can do so via private mail.

Other projects have comparable lists, and they are great. Sometimes
the offers are too general, so, I am all in for moderation. I'd like
to help moderating.
