I find it strange that you do not want non open source jobs. Who has 
something against earning a dime ?
I definitely agree with Alexandre, there is no better place to reach the 
geeks than FOSDEM and many of these geeks look for a job here or there 
and many companies need geeks ... But i can tell you that a stand alone 
job fair would definitely be not good. Of course no one wants suit 
carriers around and booths of commercial companies, but clearly saying 
no booths allowed, no suite carrying would definitely be a good start ...
