Personal note - jobs section

Alright, after some back and forth I've decided on accepting jobs into the newsletter. Pricing is always tricky, but I've settled on €100 per job posting per issue, and each job stays on the website for 60 days.

Responses are still sparse on the supply side, so we'll just take it as it comes. If your company is looking for security-minded people, then this is your chance to reach about ~6000 of them :-)
