Hey everyone,

I thought this might be interesting to some on the list.  We are looking
for a person with a good deal of Zope experience for a new position we
are hiring here at NCSU.  If you or anyone you know would be interested
in the position that follows, please apply.  

Does anyone have any suggestions of places to post the job description
in hope of getting people with Zope experience?  We have found that, so
far, this is not a trivial task.
