Free and easy startup recruiting and jobs

Angel List just introduced a free startup recruiting service.  It’s about time.  I’ve been tracking these sites at Blue Entrepreneurs. It’s basic functionality that anyone can develop.  As the markets play out, the razor blade approach will prevail.  It will just be a free feature of a much larger matching service where the companies already exist for startup funding like Angel List and networking like LinkedIn and …

… Blue.  I provide a service through DallasBlue that’s virtually free and even better.  Not only is your position distributed to thousands of startups worldwide and in particular in Dallas, plus 30,000 DallasBlue members, it’s also syndicated through LinkedIn, Cnet, Plaxo, Business Week, Mashable, GigaOM, and thousands of other sites through SimplyHired, the world’s largest search engine.  Such a deal!  Contact me to learn more.
