[Jobs] Purpose of List

Hi Everyone,

Purpose:  The purpose of this list is to help blind people get jobs.  We accomplish this goal by posting job vacancies from participating employers and list members.  We help blind jobseekers through mentoring and encouragement.  We help people who want to explore careers learn about the jobs being performed by people on this list.  We also have general discussions on relevant topics such as the changing job market, technological needs and solutions, how to interview successfully, and others.  But everything needs to be related to getting and keeping a job.  

Behaviors:  While we may offer advice, we do not do so in a critical way, because jobseekers need encouragement, not criticism.  We never criticize the employers who post to this list, even if we personally would not care to do the jobs that are advertised.  We do not sacrifice other blind people to satisfy our personal egos.  We behave in such a way as to reflect well on the National Federation of the Blind and encourage new people to join us.  If we want to have a discussion with a list member, we take it off line in order to keep the list open for others.  

That covers the basics.  Everything else is off limits.  

FYI, I just had one employer quit the list because of long discussion strings that tied up her email.

I think that David needs to restate thee purpose of this list again.
Perhaps another friendly reminder as to what this list is and what this list
is not would be in order.  Throwing in some dos and don'ts would probably
help as well.

Best to all,

Is this list being monitored by employers or hiring managers at all as it
claims?  Don't mean to be skeptical but all I'm seeing is the job
references.
