Hello Java community,

I am writing because I have been given the dubious honor of finding numerous Java developers, ranging in experience from 2 years to 12 years or more, for several companies and I am asking for assistance on how to effectively reach the Java community to communicate those job opportunities to prospective candidates - jobs are located in Northern (San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Clara and many more) and Southern California (LA and San Diego), New York (the City and Long Island) Texas (Austin, Dallas, Irving) and other locations.

Can you please assist me by providing information on any websites, work groups, groups or areas where I can reach the Java community with regularity? I have signed up for linked in, dice, Career 2.0 and other avenues, but have been unsuccessful in my searches.

Any guidance or direction will be immensely appreciated. Thank you in advance, please answer on this thread or PM me. I will respond quickly.

Posting on an actual job board would probably flood you with resumes. But if the problem is not getting enough resumes, that would do it. Or using a recruiter (but then there is a commission).

I live in New York City. At some of the user groups, they sometimes ask if anyone is trying to fill a job and then people can talk to the person.

I posted the job in the job offered and the jobs wanted section of this forum. I have posted on the usual job boards, and some rather obscure ones as well, but have been unsuccessful in reaching the Java Developer community. This post was meant to educate myself on new avenues to reach the java community. I am trying to get talented and qualified individuals connected to job opportunities that I am being asked to fill by going to the sources that hopefully will be utilized. Thank you for the input, greatly appreciate it.

I saw that. I deleted the "jobs wanted" version as that forum is meant for people who want to fill positions. "Jobs Offered" is for people who have open positions and want candidates.

Tomas, there are others ways to get attention to your job offering. It depends on whether you want to do it for free or are willing to pay for advertising. For example, we offer advertising banners here on our site. You could come up with a banner to advertise the job offering and have it shown on our site http://www.javaranch.com/advertising.jsp.
