About ADUG Delphi Jobs Lists

ADUG Delphi Jobs List

The adug-jobs@adug.org.au List is a service to Delphi developers, recruitment agencies and employers of Delphi people which was established in July 2000. It is a fee-based service which allows Delphi roles to be advertised to the ADUG membership and to non-members who have registered with the service. At April 2011 there were 858 email addresses registered with ADUG Jobs

ADUG Delphi Work Wanted List

The adug-work-wanted@adug.org.au List is the reverse service where programmers with Delphi skills can announce their availability for new work. We encourage Delphi developers, recruitment agencies and other employers of Delphi people who might find such emails useful to join this list. There is no charge to be on the list. ADUG Work Wanted is a new service introduced in June 2011. Announcing availability for work has a fee. It is expected that the fee will be less for members but non members are also encouraged to advertise availablity. As an introductory offer the service is free until the size of the list becomes viable.

Placing a job advertisement

We charge $60 to place a single ad which is emailed directly to each subscriber to DelphiJobs list. The ad can contain as much or as little detail about the position as you like. It can contain hyperlinks to your web site for more information, but must otherwise be in plain text only.

You can place an advertisement online through the ADUG registration system. Select the registration option "I want to submit a Delphi job advertisement", then provide your advertisement and other registration details. Payment can be made at the time of registration by credit card (preferred). Otherwise payment can be by EFT or cheque. The list email will generally be sent within 24 hours of payment.

This is a highly targeted form of advertising and has proven to be one of the most successful ways of recruiting Delphi people in Australia.

Suggestion on writing an ad to get the best response

The registration system asks for three main pieces of information specific to the advertisment:

Your email address for people to respond to.

A 10 word subject line. These 10 words will determine whether or not the body of the ad gets read.

A good subject line would be:

Delphi contract, Melbourne CBD, D6, Oracle & SOAP

A subject line that will not attract readers would be:

Sensational role with growing international company

The advertising copy can ideally contain 100-200 words and will provide information about the position including location and a description of the technology.

For example:

'Gain experience in Delphi XE writing distributed systems using DCOM and XML with large corporate based in Sydney CBD'

is likely to get a good response.

ADUG guarantees to forward the advertisement to registered users of DelphiJobs list within one business day of accepting the advertisement copy.

ADUG makes no warranties regarding the number of responses the advertisements generate, however our experience has been that most ads will receive a good cross section of candidates and the majority of roles advertised with ADUG have been filled by one of the ADUG respondents.
