TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The Webmaster sees the job posting first. When looking for a job, he
would not apply for a newly posted position until it had been put up
on the site for everyone. Of course, because he looked at the site a
lot, and handled the postings, he was in a better position than most
members to be aware of plum jobs ... Want that advantage? Then why not
volunteer for a position in your local chapter.
As for the board, for the CT chapter, the board had as much notice as
the rest of the membership about new jobs. It is probably true to say
the board pays more attention to the CT chapter Website than everyone
else, but there's nothing wrong with that; a motivated job seeker
would be at no disadvantage.
For the Connecticut chapter, new jobs were not first circulated on a
hidden page nor on a members-only list before posting; everyone had
and has the same chance, it's just that some are more motivated to
review the Website than others. I hope this clarifies things for you.

An offbase thought, right?
Remember, this is online. Take everything with a mine of salt and a grin.
