The New York Linux User Group is looking to relaunch our job boards, and I was hoping there was something in the Drupal world that would fit the bill.
http://www.nylug.org/ is the group. (Currently the site is custom PHP, but there is also a plan to revamp the site using a modern CMS/CMF, and this job board creation task could possible fall into that or could be a standalone site).
I see that there are a number of options in the Drupal world for doing this and was was wondering which module or modules would be best for this, and if anyone wants to help. (We are an all volunteer organization without a budget.)Read more

You can craft a solution to address that unique function by leveraging Drupal's modularity with CiviCRM's hooks and API.
