The tag used to be inundated with career-related questions. These questions are now gone (thanks to everyone involved in that clean-up job). This frees the tag for actual programming-related use.

For job scheduling, there is a tag .

For the Unix/Linux concept of jobs, should we use ?

What else can the tag mean? Should we disambiguate it? Should we keep it, and if so, meaning what?

If it related to Unix/Linux and it is not a programming question then it should go on Unix.SE. –  Bryan Dunsmore Jun 3 '12 at 19:20
    
@dunsmoreb Only if it is not a programming question. Unix & Linux does not accept programming questions. –  Gilles Jun 3 '12 at 19:26

I went through and removed all the questions in the [jobs] tag that were about employment opportunities and career advice. I think all of them that are left are firmly in the [job-scheduling] category. –  Bill the Lizard Jun 4 '12 at 1:49

@BilltheLizard Oh wow, thank you. Um, you missed a few. I expected these to be gradually closed and deleted (or framed). –  Gilles Jun 4 '12 at 18:07
    
@Gilles Hopefully it will be easier for someone to answer your real question without those 100 or so employment questions in the way. RE: Framing: LOL! I didn't really see anything worth trying to salvage. We'll see if anyone notices. :) –  Bill the Lizard Jun 4 '12 at 18:14
