The Linux Foundation and the JobThread Network have found that demand for Linux-related jobs has grown 80% since 2005. To help connect employers with skilled workers, the Linux Foundation has launched the Linux Jobs Board on Linux.com.
“Linux’ increasing use across industries is building high demand for Linux jobs despite national unemployment stats,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at the Linux Foundation. “By providing a Jobs Board feature on the popular community site, we can bring together employers, recruiters and job seekers to lay the intellectual foundation for tomorrow’s IT industry.”
Job seekers can include their LinkedIn details on their Linux.com profile, including their resume. They can also subscribe to the Jobs Board RSS feed, receive alerts by email and follow opportunities about Linux-related jobs on Twitter.
