You can say that again! In the past two days, I've received messages from
recruiters who told me, well, here's the beginning of one of them: "I
noticed your background and thought you may be interested in finding out
more about our new job opening, which is pasted below for your review. The
position is for a Software Field Engineer near Boston, MA."
I gave in to my desire to torture him, and replied, " You 'noticed my
background'? Tell me what you think it is, okay?"
They are obviously incorrigible fibbulators. I had no idea that technology
is so poor in some companies that they get "systems analyst" or "software
engineer" from my resume.
