Lousy Job Posting #5 – Voicemail Edition

And it doesn’t stop. I got this voicemail from an anonymous caller this morning. He identifies himself in the voicemail, and I like how he reads off every technology related keyword, as if I’m drooling on the other end thinking, yes, thats the exact skill sets I was looking for!

Take a listen!

Lousy ColdFusion Job Posting #4

Today, I received this email from a recruiter. SO… MUCH… FAIL…

Things wrong:

  1. My name isn’t $first name$
  2. How did my resume end up in your database? I’ve been with the same employer for 9 years.
  3. Your clients is a global company? Wow? Do they outsource to China or something?
  4. “This division is a cloud based software application development company, building multi-tiered SaaS based web based Healthcare applications.” – using the word ‘based’ a little too much? What’s multi-tiered SaaS?
  5. “Lead a team of circa 8 Senior and Junior developers and QA staff.” ‘Circa’, really?
  6. When I clicked on your link, it looked like an old Geocities web site? Paw prints, really?
  7. “We are a highly professional and ethical firm”… sure…
  8. Your LinkedIn shows your vast experience working as a Courier for Fedex.
  9. Your unsubscribe link says I don’t have Javascript enabled. Nice excuse.

Back to Blogging

After a much longer hiatus from blogging that anticipated, I will start blogging once again in the coming weeks. I’m particularly interested in cloud computing, big data, and the future of the web, especially as it related to JEE technologies like ColdFusion.
