Job Offerings - Great Gatsby's Auction

Every once in a while I am contacted by someone with information about job offerings which might be of interest to the appraisal community.  I try not to make a habit of it, yet in the current economic environment, if I can help and pass along possible job and career opportunities, I like to get the word out.
