Um, I don't want to hire someone who uses their employer's time to
look for another job. If I caught anyone doing that in my group, I'd
hope they made some progress by the time I found out, because they'd
need the lead time.

See my post in which I mention crooked ties and messy hair.

> Also note that recruiters often rewrite candidate resumes.

Which is why I don't accept resumes from recruiters when hiring or use
recruiters in my own job hunt.
