That would be because recruiters like to *get paid* for finding
workers for companies, and those who approach the company
directly can eliminate the middle-man's markup and negotiate
better wages. That's obviously not a favorable outcome for the

Actually, the policy on this list (as stated at
http://seattleperl.org/#Jobs) is that *nobody* is supposed to
post a job announcement directly in the first place; they are
meant to be sent to spug at teachmeperl.com first for verification,
additional info gathering, and editing, to ensure the
completeness and accuracy of job postings. Those who violate this
policy may be prevented any further access to our list.

On your other point, SPUG doesn't currently require that job
offers identify the company with the opening; that's to encourage
recruiters to work with us.
