Thanks for asking.  Our policy allows job postings as long as 1) their
subject line starts with [job] (for those who wish to filter them out)
and 2) the same ad is not reposted too often--about once every two
months is OK.

Posting a URL is fine, but you probably want to use URLs from your own
web site, since jobs.perl.org postings expire quickly.  Often it's
helpful to add a couple of lines of summary in the post, followed by
the URL.

Thanks and good luck,
