*Today I was contacted by a recruiter who asked me if "*may know someone
that would be interested in a Application Security consulting position in
NY. Someone who has experience with Ounce Labs for source code review, PCI
compliance, OWASP and risk management. Need is immediate. I would appreciate
any referrals you can think of. Thank you in advance."

My immediate reaction was to direct this person to the OWASP job board.  The
"rules" for the job board are below.  These rules are not conducive to
getting jobs posted on the board by recruiters.  Why do we need a direct
contact at the company???

And it turns out this job board is not conducive to ANYONE because there are
ZERO jobs posted on the board.  Someone posted "
Check back soon.... or try calling some of the OWASP Corporate
Members<http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Membership#Current_OWASP_Members>that
understand the importance of application security to business"

?  Which really doesn't make a lot of sense.

The members of our audience are very highly skilled professionals who don't
fit the typical System Admin position for Company X.  We need to recognize
this and make it as easy as possible for people to advertise their jobs with
us.  In this economy we owe it to our members to light up and let people
post. If our job board rocked people would want to post on it because people
were looking at it.

*Who has the authority to change up this rule set?
