The Matrix Jobs Room (#jobs:matrix.org) is a public room where customers can post jobs and potential vendors can apply to take them.
What follows is a basic guide to etiquette and how to get what you need from the room.
Post your request with as much context, transparency and information as possible. For example, if you have a specific installation requirement for a project, mentioning these details would be helpful in the initial post.
Once you've selected a vendor, post to the public room to say so, to save other vendors continuing to email you.
If you have questions about the scope of the project, you can ask them in the public room before moving to Direct Messaging with the customer. This will allow other potential vendors to see more details of the request and save the customer needing to type the same details to multiple people.
