If they are FTE, they shouldn't be advertised in #gigs @doerneratl. Full Time positions go in #jobs
@renita.canady A founder is a permanent position, and should be advertised in jobs. That posting has been removed.
@timmyg43 Contract to Hire is a permenent position, and should be advertised in jobs, that posting has been removed.
Thanks, @mj_langford. Everyone needs to be on the same page. When I post a contract-to-hire in #jobs I’m told it should be in #gigs.
Pretty harsh to remove the posting.
I have updated the topics in #jobs
Gigs are for freelancers and people who are taking on work outside of work
I understand that
Jobs are for people who will have a longterm relationship with a company
That is always what I though
The lack of clarity is sometimes hard to get through in the limited means of slack
But @eldondev and others were telling us to post here
We are fundamentally, using a in-company tool for a community, and it has some holes, this being one
I apologize if I misdirected people
Make sure the other Moderators get the memo
I have always been clear that I am not a mod, just trying to help
I've put in a PR to the recruiting policy. It was not clearly stated in a permanent fashion.
So full-time specific term (full time for 6 months, 2 years, whatever but contractor), goes where?
From what I remember when we made the policy: #jobs and #gigs were open ended created by the community. The recruitment policy was designed to make it so people who wanted a thing (a job, a gig) could go to a specific channel, and otherwise, the non-recruitment channels would be empty
The "topic" in this channel and in #jobs draw the distinction along w-2/1099 lines, is that still legit?
Following that, the #jobs channel is for people who are looking for a perm home somewhere and the #gigs channel for something non-job like. C2H is a alternative hiring practice for W2 jobs. You do not usually have the option of not being hired at the end.
The purpose and topic in this channel seem to directly contradict each other regarding full-time, am I reading it wrote?
rather, you do, but only leaving entirely, you cannot often stay on as a contractor
@mj_langford set the channel topic: Intended for 1099 work (full-time or part-time) see #jobs for (eventual or immediate) W2 | IMPORTANT: See recruitment policy: <https://github.com/tech404/tech404.io/blob/gh-pages/RecruitmentPolicy.md>
Does that make it clear? tech404 is certainly valuable for the people posting, but the end use is generally for the people reading. And most people will only want one of #jobs or #gigs
and this place to slice the W2 divide serves that goal.
IDK, I see lots of people looking for whatever they can get
i think the updated topics make a nice distinction.
certainly many people want work of any stripe, and they are best served by subscribing to both
