Consider posting your job to an actual job board

Howdy, Thanks so much for being part of the Portland Startups Switchboard, a service designed to help members of the Portland startup community help one another through Asks and Offers.  If you've spent even a cursory amount of time on the board, you've no doubt noticed a preponderance of job posts on the site.

That said, there are real job boards in town that are specifically designed to connect employers and potential employees.
