The list still exists.  New subscriptions are approved regularly.
We get about five new subscriptions a week.  I'd considered
moving the list off of yahoogroups after their changing-mail-pref

sometime in the next 30 days or so, but subscriptions will be

I invite those interested or those recently subscribed to send
a short introduction to the list regarding who you are, what you're
looking for, and what skillsets.  A resume is not desired or

nanog-jobs has only had, IIRC, about five job postings, but it is
an excellent way to get in touch with a good cross-section of
candidates who tend to have more network engineering and architecture

My purpose in creating the list was the hope that a more informal
recruitment structure would prevail, since prescreening was less
necessary in the light of the fact that I tend to aggressively
moderate subscriptions to the list and I tried very hard to target
(in my initial actions in creating the list) people with routing
protocol and switching experience primarily, while trying not to
target those with MCSE/CCNA certifications alone.
