Request for #istio-careers channel on istio slack

Would it be possible to create a #istio-careers channel on the istio slack similar to the #kubernetes-careers channel on the k8s slack ? Since istio is such a niche area of expertise and is rapid being adopted at an increasing number of enterprises, I think dedicating a channel to istio related jobs/career paths would be beneficial to the community.

If the maintainers think this is not a good idea, can you suggest an alternative forum for posting career links targeting istio/servicemesh talent.
