This is a great place for practicing "give to get." With 1600 members, what can happen here when members own the content?
We welcome volunteers to coordinate the job postings on a weekly basis.
Employers and members submit jobs that must be readied for inclusion in the
newsletter. A lack of help means fewer jobs get posted in a timely manner.
Why not be the first one to see new postings.

People from “the old school” think networking is for job seekers who
need help. “The new school” philosophy focuses on networking as a
professional competency. One must master “networking skills” to get his job

It’s a paradigm
shift. To get what you want, you must first GIVE to someone else. This is
also known as the ‘boomerang effect’ or ‘reciprocity principle.’
