A hiring digest on the leaders list may even be useful if it doesn't get flooded. M2c

OWASP Foundation allows job postings to it's Facebook group. We just need to make sure to move them there when they end up on the wrong board.

What we do at meetings is ask who are hiring for appsec or appsec-related jobs at the meeting and then say if anyone is looking or interested in a new opportunity talk to one of the people who raised their hand. I know there are the occasional recruiter that comes to our meetings and if they follow our rules and nicely network we don't have an issue with it. The flip side, I know everyone could use more appsec talent internally so in reality everyone is trying to recruit/hire each other ;)

You might want to poll your membership and find out how they feel, it tends to vary meetup to meetup for me. From my stance, I only allow companies recruiting for internal roles. External recruiters are not welcome to spam us. We get some, but I quickly let them know the best way to reach our audience is to think about sponsoring a meeting, come out and talk face to face with our membership.
