Jobs are only useful based on location, that means a particular job in 
Brussels may not appeal to 99% of the subscribers, and therefor the 
signal-to-noise ratio is very poor. (May be different for very short 
contract work items or simple support requests)

I would leave job-offerings to dedicated, specialised sites where people 
can search and put resumes online. But if we have people to volunteer for 
the moderation I do not object with an experiment :)

I just think it may be a waste of time, especially if moderation is 
required. Although it seems to work out fine for Drupal:
