Maybe someone has already suggested this, but what about getting prosective employers to give away a new job each week? There could be different categories of jobs based upon experience levels.
I'm not sure how everyone would compete, maybe do it like the regular giveaway, everyone that posts has a chance. Once you get a job, you are not eligible for another year.

I've never applied for or held a software development position, but my understanding is that people traditionally submit resume's, provide evidence of compentancy, have interviews, etc. I don't know that I'd want to work for an employer insane enough to hire someone who hasn't been carefully reviewed beforehand.

It's an amusing idea, but I think it's very doubtful it would be practical - what employer would want to hand out a job in this manner? And even if we found one - what about goegraphic considerations? While some people might travel just about anywhere for a job, many others are limited by practical considerations, like already having a home and family in a particular city. I just don't see this idea as potentially practical.

As a job is not a one time give away or gift, its' not practical!

And what would be really cool. Is that when the winner is chosen, they then have to spin the "Wheel of Salary" to find out how much they will get paid.

But... but... we provide all those cute smilies for your use, for just this sort of occasion. And you ignore them. So what are we supposed to think?

Sorry to offend.
