In the spirit of fresh starts, we need to draw attention to the way the List works.
We were recently embarrassed with a client, as a job that was specifically brought to us for our members-only board was shared on Facebook, causing confusion and the application of several non-members to a job that should have been reserved for current Listers. Further, one of those applicants not only applied for the gig but offered to staff the gig from her own contacts. While we believe that both instances occurred as a result of naivete or a simple misunderstanding, sharing closed opportunities and attempts to poach clients are both considered highly unprofessional, as well as unethical. While the Open Calls board is available to the public, sharing jobs from our members-only job board with non-members is, and has always been, outside our rules of conduct, and can be deemed grounds for banning a member or potential candidate from the List.
