Help Wanted

The SourceForge.net Help Wanted system allows projects to advertise open positions to potential volunteers. This is similar to the jobs section of a newspaper. Projects define the necessary skill and a description of the job opening. Site users may review Help Wanted listings and find a project that needs their help.

Create a new listing

  1. Log into the SourceForge.net website and go to the Project Develop page.
  2. Under the Project Admin tab select Feature Settings.
  3. In the row for Help Wanted choose Submit.
  4. Fill out the "Create a New Job" form and click the "Continue >>" button.
  5. Add the minimum required skills and experience. Click the "Add Skill" button each time a new skill is to be added.
  6. Click on the 'Finished' button.

Jobs posted to the Help Wanted system are automatically closed after two weeks. Please keep a local copy (i.e. in a text file or similar) of your job postings, as copies are not generally retained by the SourceForge.net system.

Editing an existing listing

To edit a previously posted Help Wanted advertisement:

  1. Log into the SourceForge.net website and go to the Project Develop page.
  2. Under the Project Admin tab select Feature Settings.
  3. In the row for Help Wanted choose Manage.
  4. Click on the title of the job to edit.
  5. Click on the "Edit Job" link.
  6. Modify the job as desired and click on the 'Finished' button.
