Personally I am not really a fan of job postings being put on this forum. Between all the different EA organizations it would be pretty easy for every second post to be a job ad, and I think that would weaken the forum content for most users. The "Effective Altruism Job Postings" group does a pretty good job at consolidating all jobs that are EA relevant in a central space without cluttering up a space like this.

Hopefully when CEA develops the EA Forum in the coming months there will be a designated section for job listings :)

I'm agnostic on the issue. FB groups have their own drawbacks, but I appreciate the clutter concern. In the interest of balance, perhaps anyone who agrees with you can upvote your comment, anyone who disagrees can upvote this comment (and hopefully people won't upvote them for any other reason) and if there's a decent discrepancy we can consider the question answered?

I have upvoted Joey's comment to indicate agreement with Joey. I have downvoted the original post too for that same reason.

Right now there's a collective action problem and we're very lucky that so few organizations post job ads here, despite there being a clear incentive for more organizations to try to hire via the EA Forum. Low-effort job ads clutter the EA Forum and bury great posts that some of us have spent dozens of hours writing.

K. I'll consider my wrist duly slapped!
